It cannot be for Obama to continue to point fingers to others, because of his failure to fulfill his promises to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and to achieve justice. (in Arabic)
KPFK Radio Panel about Guantanamo with Peter Jan Honigsberg, David Glazier, Prof. of Law, Loyola Law School and Jonathan Hafetz, Prof. of Law, Seton Law
Torturous, painful, hopeless, oppressive, unrelenting: these are the words used by Moazzam Begg to describe his three years of detention in the United States prison camp at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. One of the world’s most infamous prisons is 10 years old this week. A decade of controversy.
Ten years ago, the first 20 prisoners arrived at the U.S. Naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Eventually that number would go up to nearly 700.
Honigsberg has penned a powerful indictment of Bush’s War on Terror, vivid and horrifying and hard to put down.
