The Guantánamo Files: An Archive of Articles – Part Six, January to June 2010


The Guantanamo Files

Please support my work!

For over four years, I have been providing detailed information about the prisoners in Guantánamo, first through my book The Guantánamo Files, which tells the story of the prison and around 450 of the prisoners held, and then through 12 online chapters, which provide information about the majority of the other 329 prisoners (see the links in the left-hand column). Alongside this project, I have been working assiduously as a full-time independent journalist, covering stories as they develop, and focusing in particular on the stories of released prisoners, the Military Commission trial system, and the prisoners’ progress in the courts, through their habeas corpus petitions. I have also focused unerringly on the crimes of the Bush administration and, since January 2009, on the failures of the Obama administration to thoroughly repudiate those crimes, to hold anyone accountable, and, increasingly, on its failure to charge or release prisoners, and to show any sign that Guantánamo will eventually be closed.

My intention, all along, has been to bring the men to life through their stories, dispelling the Bush administration’s rhetoric about the prison holding “the worst of the worst,” and demonstrating how, instead, the majority of the prisoners were either innocent men, seized by the US military’s allies at a time when bounty payments were widespread, or recruits for the Taliban, who had been encouraged by supporters in their homelands to help the Taliban in a long-running inter-Muslim civil war (with the Northern Alliance), which began long before the 9/11 attacks and, for the most part, had nothing to do with al-Qaeda or international terrorism. As I explain in the introduction to my four-part Definitive Prisoner List (which I will be updating next week), I remain convinced, through detailed research and through comments from insiders with knowledge of Guantánamo, that “at least 93 percent of the 779 men and boys imprisoned in total” had no involvement with terrorism.

However, as this is a blog, rather than a website, I recognize that it’s increasingly difficult to navigate, as there are so many “Categories,” and, most crucially, there is no access to articles in anything other than reverse chronological order. In an attempt to remedy this shortcoming, and to provide easy access to the most important articles on the site, I put together five chronological lists of all my articles in January this year, covering the periods May to December 2007, January to June 2008, July to December 2008, January to June 2009 and July to December 2009, in the hope that they would provide a useful tool for navigation, and would provide researchers — and anyone else interested in this particularly bleak period of modern history — with a practical archive.

This latest list, combined with the forthcoming update to my definitive prisoner list, brings the story up to date, although I’m sad to report that, for the most part, it has not been a period that reflects well on the Obama administration, beginning, as it did, with an unjustifiable — and politically motivated — moratorium on the release of any cleared Yemeni prisoners for an unspecified amount of time (following the failed mission of the Nigerian would-be plane bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and revelations that he was recruited in Yemen), and the President’s failure to meet his self-imposed deadline for closing Guantánamo. This coincided with the publication of the Guantánamo Review Task Force’s report on the prisoners’ “disposition,” with its shocking recommendation that 48 men should continue to be held indefinitely without charge or trial.

The period covered by this archive was also distressingly notable for a pitiful downturn in the numbers of prisoners released. Even though the Task Force recommended over half of the remaining prisoners for release (114 of the 198 men held at the start of this period), only 17 were freed between January and June.

The prisoners were more successful in the District Court in Washington D.C., where, since October 2008, judges have been ruling on their habeas petitions. 12 cases were decided in this period, with six won by the prisoners, and six won by the government. In a major project in April and May, “Guantánamo Habeas Week,” I produced a definitive list of the rulings to date (34 for the prisoners, 16 for the government), which included detailed analyses of seven of these rulings, and throughout this period I also covered other rulings in depth, because, as I explained back in April, the judges’ rulings are “the single most important collection of documents analyzing the failures of the Bush administration’s ‘War on Terror’ detention policies — and Obama’s refusal, or inability to thoroughly repudiate them.” This is true, even though the rulings are plagued by a structural problem — the reliance on the Congress- approved Authorization for Use of Military Force, passed the week after the 9/11 attacks — which obliges the judges to approve the ongoing detention of soldiers in Guantánamo, when they should be held as prisoners of war.

On torture, this was a distressing period, with the shameful manipulation of a long-awaited internal Justice Department report on the conduct of the lawyers in the Office of Legal Counsel (John Yoo and Jay S. Bybee) who wrote and approved the “torture memos” in August 2002, which purported to redefine torture, so that they were found to have exercised “poor judgment’ rather than being found guilty of “professional misconduct.” Nevertheless, the distressing story of Abu Zubaydah (for whom the torture program was developed) continued to leak out, revealing more about how he was not a member of al-Qaeda at all, and the six-month period ended with a complaint filed in Texas against one of the architects of the torture program.

Moreover, in February, the United Nations produced a major report on secret detention. This contained a detailed section on the history of the US program of rendition and secret prisons, which I cross-posted last month in three articles here, here and here.

Elsewhere, there were revelations from Bagram, in the form of the first official prisoner list, and, more distressingly, in allegations regarding a secret prison, as well as other bad news — the denial of habeas corpus to foreign prisoners rendered to Bagram from other countries — and slightly better news, as Obama introduced a new review process, and began releasing prisoners in significant numbers.

The period was also notable for claims, first aired by Scott Horton in Harper’s Magazine, that three prisoners at Guantánamo, who died in June 2006, had not committed suicide, as alleged, but had been killed — either deliberately, or as part of a torture session that went too far. This deeply disturbing story was largely ignored in the mainstream US media, although I covered it, as did other bloggers, and I also tried to keep the story going, on the 4th anniversary of the men’s deaths this June, when I also made a point of reviving discussions of the other unexplained deaths at Guantánamo in 2007 and 2009.

In the UK, former prisoner Omar Deghayes and I undertook a major tour of campuses and other venues (including Amnesty International’s London HQ and the National Film Theatre), screening the new documentary film, “Outside the Law: Stories from Guantánamo” (directed by filmmaker Polly Nash and myself), to great acclaim from those who saw it. Polly and I also visited Oslo in February to show it at a human rights film festival, and in April it was screened as part of the London International Documentary Festival.

In May, the General Election promised some improvement on the dire human rights record of the Labour government, and, within weeks of taking office, foreign secretary William Hague announced an inquiry into British complicity in torture, but it remains to be seen how much the new government will deliver — and Shaker Aamer, the last British resident in Guantánamo, is still held, for no adequate reason.

On the work front, this has been a successful period for me, as I continued writing for the Guardian and Truthout, continued writing a weekly column for the Future of Freedom Foundation, and also began working for Cageprisoners as a Senior Researcher. I was also interviewed on Democracy Now! and Russia Today, did a BBC show on torture in February, and also took part in numerous radio shows, which can be found here. In addition, numerous sites began cross-posting my work, including Eurasia Review and others, which helped me to become listed as one of Technorati’s Top 20 World Politics Blogs, and also to be listed in the Top 100 Politics Blogs and the Top 100 US Politics Blogs (Nos. 17, 84 and 53, at the time of writing). As ever, though, much of my work is unpaid, so any contributions (via the PayPal button above) will be gratefully received.

In conclusion, I can only wish that my work wasn’t so necessary, and that President Obama would find the courage that he has failed to show since his first few days in office, when he indicated that he would be providing a clean break with the policies of his predecessor. Not only has this promise not come true, but in many ways those of us who abhor torture and arbitrary detention are even more disappointed than we were in the days of Bush and Cheney, as pragmatism and political maneuvering, rather than fanatically misconceived ideology, seem to be running the show, and are much more difficult to combat.
