This is what evil looks like
A newly published Memoir from Guantanamo provides a stunning, vivid, and highly personal description of things that the United States has done — sleep deprivation, temperature extremes, beatings, humiliation — to dozens of people who have never been charged with any crime. No wonder so many Guantanamo detainees are now on hunger strike. I guess President Bush was right that the Iraq war would show us an axis of evil. I just didn’t realize that would consist of my own country’s actions.
