The truth about Guantánamo | Moazzam Begg | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk: "I have always believed that the secret detention sites – where prisoners were waterboarded – and military prisons, such as Bagram, were far worse than Guantánamo. Now I'm not so sure. They once called it 'asymmetrical warfare' and a 'good PR move' but the US administration may soon have to call the alleged suicides of prisoners in Guantánamo something they were trying to hide all along: murder.

The latest revelations in the US magazine Harper's suggests a major cover-up occurred after the 2006 deaths of three Guantánamo prisoners: Manei al-Otaibi and Yasser al-Zahrani from Saudi Arabia and Ali al-Salami from Yemen. Four Camp Delta Military Intelligence guards, including a decorated sergeant, have furnished an account dramatically at odds with the official US version of what happened on the night of the deaths. I remember at the time how none of the former prisoners believed the official US version and, after I spoke to the families of the deceased, they too remained convinced that their loved ones had either been killed accidentally or – more likely – murdered."

relationship to heroin. Much like a heroin
addict who will lie, cheat, and steal to feed
their vice, certain members of our government
will lie, cheat, and steal to continue their
dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the
KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation
and its leaders from the inside out.
