Summary
The most comprehensive primary source account ever published of ongoing abuse at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Bay prison, detailing systematic physical, psychological, sexual, medical and religious abuse of detainees, filling 51 pages and 279 footnotes. The report is particularly significant in light of the Supreme Court's recent Hamdan decision because it catalogues conduct by U.S. officials in violation of the Geneva Conventions, which the court applied to detainees, and analyzes the administration's attempt to create a "legal black hole" for enemy combatants in sections discussing the administration's liability concerns regarding conduct at the base Geneva, war crimes, and the forthcoming revisions to the Army Field Manual. Examples are "drawn directly from habeas counsels' unclassified notes" taken during interviews with the Guantanamo detainees
