Guantanamo Bay is a Disgrace

Guantanamo has been used by the U.S. to keep people in cages for over a decade with no charges or due process. This has also occurred with the use of torture there, despite how torture has been shown to be ineffective (by a U.S. government report no less), and also despite how it’s a reprehensible civil liberties infringement.

The report finds that CIA detainees subjected to what were then called “enhanced interrogation techniques” either produced no intelligence, or they “fabricated information, resulting in faulty intelligence”. It says that the CIA’s own interrogators “assessed that the most effective method for acquiring intelligence from detainees, including from detainees the CIA considered to be the most ‘high-value’, was to confront the detainees with information already acquired by the intelligence community”.
