In his state of the Union address, President Obama called for the closure of the U.S. prison at Guatanamo Bay. "It's not who we are," he said.
Too late for Mohamedou Ould Slahi. As the Lawfare blog reminds us, Slahi was a member of al-Qaeda in the 1990s who was captured in 2001, tortured, and later provided information to U.S. interrogators, according to the Washington Post. Slahi is still being held at Guantanamo without charges.
From the UK Independent.
"Mr Slahi's Guantanamo Diary, published today, is the only account written by a detainee still held in the controversial American military prison on Cuba. The 44-year-old describes how he was told he would be taught about 'great American sex' and then he was tortured and forced to have sexual intercourse with female interrogators."
