“Guantánamo: America’s war on human rights”


British journalist David Rose spoke about Guantánamo and his book Guantánamo: America’s war on human rights (The New Press 2004). Here is an excerpt from his book:

“Camp Delta at Guantánamo Bay is the most controversial prison in the world.  The 600 detainees in Cuba have been held in a legal black hole. Are they ‘the hardest of the hard-core’ Al Qaeda terrorists, ruthless men ‘involved in a plot to kill thousands of ordinary Americans’, as the Bush administration has maintained? And has their continued imprisonment really been a necessary weapon in the war against terror, preventing further murders and providing an invaluable trove of intelligence?”
