First, Holder deserves a lot of credit for releasing the draft reports too...it gives the full picture of the whitewash done by Margolis... I have too much on my plate right now so I cannot give these reports the kind of look that needs to be done...suffice it to say that the original report found that Yoo and Bybee were involved in misconduct and should be referred to disciplinary committees. Emptywheel has a working thread starting with the first draft...if you have the time read the comments too as there many others going through those documents and adding important citations.

And if you have time take a look at Jack Balkin's comments here.
The book is out now. It is a sobering read on the plight of those men and women that we have unlawfully detained and imprisoned without trial for years by the Bush era war criminals. Peter also recounts our meeting at Guantanamo and follows some of the developments in Mr. Al-Ghizzawi's case. This is a must read.
If you have not read Ron's book then you do not have the whole story about what I have been doing to try to get my clients out ofGuantanamo. Ron kept up with my activities and even followed me around on occasion to get the full story... then he weaved my story in with the stories of other individuals who are concerned with the direction of the United States. I recommend the book to all of you out there who also care about the direction that the US has gone these past eight years and want to work to change things.
