Latif---the continuing tragedy

My last update on the tragic death of Latif at the hands of our military included Latif's own words. Those letters were released after the military declared Latif's death an apparent suicide. The bottom line is that Latif is dead for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and being held by a country that has put fear ahead of justice.
And so now I share the latest in this outrage. The military faults its own guards in Latif's death for their collective failure to even follow the basic rules set up at the camp. Unfortunately they are still calling this a suicide but there are too many unanswered questions for that label to stick.
