Torture and Terrorism: In the Middle East It’s 2011, In America It’s Still 2001

1.4.11

The gulf between what’s happening on the ground in the Middle East and the way it is perceived by the US intelligence services — as well as the gulf between how critics perceive America’s counterterrorism policies in the Middle East, and how those policies are perceived by US intelligence — were recently exposed in an […]

Video: Ex-Guantánamo Prisoner and Victim of US Rendition and Torture Speaks
