Guantanamo Diary

The guardian has an amazing series from the diary of Ould Slahi a current detainee at Guantanamo. Part of the story has to be how Ould was able to tell his story from inside Guantanamo. The diary is due to be published next week. Here is the description by the Guardian:

"The groundbreaking memoir of a current Guantánamo inmate that lays bare the harrowing details of the US rendition and torture programme from the perspective of one of its victims is to be published next week after a six-year battle for the manuscript to be declassified."

Guantánamo Diary, the first book written by a still imprisoned detainee, is being published in 20 countries and has been serialised by the Guardian amid renewed calls by civil liberty campaigners for its author’s release.

H/O to W.A. for alerting me to this.....
