sohail_67 commented on the blog post Eric Holder: Moving KSM Trial to Gitmo Wrong Decision, But We’re Doing It Anyway
In January, 2007, I was in the city of Guantanamo, Cuba with human rights activists calling for the closure of the US military prison on the fifth anniversary of the first prisoners being sent there. With us was former prisoner, Asif Iqbal, a 23-year old who told us that he had been beaten by US interrogators until he confessed to helping plan the 9/11 attacks. In reality, he was a completely innocent young man who happened to be in Afghanistan when the U.S. attack began and was swept up with hundreds of other local people. He told us how prisoners in Afghanistan and in Guantanamo confessed to anything the interrogators wanted to prevent further torture.
I think that all those people who confessed after severe torture to having links with 9-11, its highly probable to think that they might be forced to do so.
