Controversy flares at Guantanamo over female guards
by Chantal Valery
In the recently released "Camp X-Ray," "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart plays a soldier assigned to Guantanamo Bay who ends up befriending one of the detainees.
In reality, inmates at the US military prison have balked at the presence of female guards, saying it is an affront to their religious beliefs.
