GUANTANAMO THE WAR ON HUMAN RIGHTS HB

(Author)

Description

Praised as a "tour-de-force deconstruction of Bush's supermax gulag" ( San Diego Union Tribune ) when first published in hardcover, Guantanamo makes shocking allegations about the infamous U.S. detention camp in Cuba. Award-winning journalist David Rose argues that the camp not only constitutes a grotesque abuse of human rights but is also ineffective as a tool for combating terrorism.

Through firsthand research in Cuba, government documents, and dozens of interviews with guards, intelligence officials, military lawyers, and former detainees, Rose sheds light on Gitmo's ugly inner workings. He reveals that, contrary to the Bush administration's claims, the prisoners at Guantanamo are not "the hardest of the hard-core" Al Qaeda terrorists, ruthless men "involved in a plot to kill thousands of ordinary Americans." And he provides solid evidence that the brutal interrogations that supposedly justify the camp's existence have yielded very little useful intelligence.
