"Looking alive but actually dead"

That is what one prisoner said about his long term isolation.... For Mr. Al-Ghizzawi this isolation has helped fuel his physical and mental decline. Two new reports out from the center for constitutional rights in a report to congress outline the effects of the long term solitary confinement on the prisoners at guantanamo (including Mr. Al-Ghizzawi) and the outrageous practice of our government in allowing interrogators from foreign countries into Guantanamo to threaten and coerce the prisoners.
Links are below thanks to Charles Gittings at the Project to enforce the Geneva Conventions (www.pegc.us) who posted the articles so that I could link to them..
