Torture -The Guantanamo Guidebook

UK’s channel 4 “Guantanamo Handbook” documentary.

1 December 2011. An Open Letter to the US Congress From Members of the British Parliament About Guantanamo. Jeremy Corbyn, John Leech, Caroline Lucas and Michael Meacher, Truthout: “As a group of elected members of Parliament (MP) from all the main parties represented at Westminster, we are outraged by the current position of the US Congress which, apparently, means that Guantanamo Bay prison will never be closed, and, of particular concern to us, that a British resident who was cleared for release more than two years ago, cannot return here.” See the letter here.

22 July 2015: ONE GLARING ITEM LEFT ON OBAMA’S TO-DO LIST: GUANTANAMO “President Obama is enjoying a winning streak lately, with the Supreme Court reaffirming his signature health care law and Iran agreeing to curbs on its nuclear program. But one longstanding goal continues to bedevil him: closing the wartime prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The administration’s fitful effort to shut down the prison is collapsing again.” [NYT]

    US officials admitted on Tuesday that a Yemeni man was imprisoned without trial for 13 years at the Guantanamo Bay prison in a case of mistaken identity.

    Blundering intelligence agents mistook Mustafa al-Aziz al-Shamiri for a high-ranking al-Qaida courier and trainer with a similar name.

    But in fact he was a lowly foot soldier of limited interest to the CIA interrogators who tortured suspects at the naval base on illegally occupied Cuban soil.

    Mr Shamiri’s file says that he fought in the Bosnian conflict in 1995, the Yemeni civil war in 1996 and with the Taliban from 2000 to 2001, when he was captured in Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan.
