Lawrence Wilkerson Demolishes Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld’s Lies About Guantánamo


Those of us who have been studying the recent career of Col. Lawrence Wilkerson were not surprised when, last week, he submitted a declaration (PDF) in a lawsuit seeking compensation from the US government that was filed by former Guantánamo prisoner Adel Hassan Hamad. A Sudanese hospital worker, Hamad was sold to US forces by […]

Sudanese ex-Guantánamo detainees demand release of fellow citizens and compensation for “mental and physical torture”


From Sudan, Reuters reports on a conference held in the capital, Khartoum, to demand the release of seven Sudanese detainees still held in Guantánamo.

Jostling for media space in the last week –- and largely losing out to spurious claims that Guantánamo is about to close –- is the story of Lt. Col.
