Release from the Guantanamo Bay prison to the South American country has not amounted to freedom for many of the men whom the U.S. government previously regarded as “high threat” members of al-Qaida’s global terrorist network.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, known as the mastermind of 9/11, has released a new manifesto and allegedly come into a new way of thinking and believing.
A four-month hunger strike, mass force-feedings, and widespread media coverage have brought Guantanamo back into American consciousness. Still unnoticed and out of the news, however, is a comparable situation in the U.S. itself, involving a pattern of controversial terrorism trials that result in devastating prison sentences involving the harshest forms of solitary confinement.
A lawyer who represented prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay was found dead last week in what sources are calling a suicide.
The president failed the first time he promised to close America's island gulag, but heading into the fourth month of a hunger strike by prisoners there, Obama renewed his commitment Tuesday to shuttering the facility.
Attorneys defending the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks and four others accused of being involved have asked to be incarcerated “for two nights in the Guantanamo prison in order to understand the conditions in which their clients are held.”
