The Case of Murat Kurnaz

Murat Kurnaz, a Turkish-German man and former Guantánamo inmate has written a book, soon to be published, about his experiences at the prison camp.

Although Mr. Kurnaz was deemed to be harmless shortly after his capture, diplomatic imbroglios and government inaction resulted in a nearly five years of imprisonment for the so-called "Bremen Taliban."

According to UPI, Germany's foreign minister may be forced to resign over this scandalous injustice. Of course, no resignations are forthcoming from any government officials on the American side for the ongoing travesty of Guantánamo.

In the United States official impunity holds the day.
