Guantanamo Bay has become a name synonymous with
torture and lawlessness. Years after the so-called
“War on Terror” began, information about operations
in this U.S.-controlled section of Cuba have slowly
leaked out. In an astounding new book titled “A
Place Outside the Law: Forgotten Voices from
Guantanamo,” University of San Francisco law
professor Peter Jan Honigsberg documents the
firsthand accounts of 52 of the 780 detainees held
at Guantanamo Bay by U.S. authorities.
On the latest installment of “Scheer
Intelligence,” Honigsberg, who was allowed to
interview only former detainees, tells Truthdig
Editor in Chief Robert Scheer some of the stories of
these men who were “purchased” by the U.S.
government, and detained without charges or a trial,
most of whom were completely innocent.
“The way this happened was after the attacks on
9/11, America dropped flyers over Afghanistan that
said, ‘Bring us Taliban and al-Qaida fighters and
we’ll pay you,’ ” the law professor explains.
