Murder At Camp Delta

 A few weeks ago I posted a link to the talking dog's interview of Joseph Hickman- author of the book Murder at Camp David: A Staff Sergeant's Pursuit of the Truth About Guantanamo Bay. ( You can purchase the book here.) I had not finished reading the book when I posted the link so I did not say too much about the book itself. I have now finished the book.
For those of you who think you know everything about Guantanamo (like me, for example) pick up the book and be amazed and disgusted. For those of you who would like a primer on the US war crimes at Guantanamo in a nice readable book- this is the book for you.
How can it be both? Joe managed to find, describe and put in readable format not only the facts regarding the three men that died together on June 9, 2006 but also- through meticulous investigative work (with Seton Hall law students and professor Mark Denbeaux) on the cover up and on other war crimes against the men being held at the base-- it is the extent of the cover up that I was unfamiliar with and which could be strong evidence to be utilized in the off-chance there is ever a criminal investigation into the deaths and the other war crimes at Guantanamo.
Read the book.
