  1. Mohammed el Gorani and Jérôme Tubiana · Diary: Guantánamo · LRB 15 December 2011

    This month it’s ten years since Guantanamo opened. People are still held there indefinitely. This is one former detainee’s account. Yay America! You must all be so proud.

  2. LRB · David Simpson · Because We Could

    Interesting look at why soldiers torture prisoners. Lays much of the blame at (a) the normalisation of torture as a technique in films/TV watched by troops and (b) the training soldiers go through that prepares them for being tortured themselves. (Subscribers only.)

  3. The inhumane detention conditions of Bradley Manning - Glenn Greenwald -

    I increasingly find myself thinking that if the USA were a country that was mainly, say, Muslim, or full of dark-skinned, non-English-speaking people, the “West” would be deploring its behaviour, talking about sanctions, etc.

  4. LRB · Gareth Peirce · America’s Non-Compliance

    Good description of quite how scary America is in terms of lack of civil rights for those accused of crimes (never mind convicted), whether in America or not.

  5. Detainee 063

    Real-time account of the interrogation of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner, seven years on, Pepys’ Diary style. (via Kottke)
