A Surprising Proposal at the Supreme Court in Torture Case – The New York Times

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/06/us/politics/supreme-court-torture-abu-zubaydah.html

«Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian, was captured in Pakistan in March 2002 and was initially thought be a high-level member of Al Qaeda. A 2014 report from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence said “the C.I.A. later concluded that Abu Zubaydah was not a member of Al Qaeda.”»

And:

«Abu Zubaydah, who was waterboarded more than 60 times and is being held without charge at Guantánamo Bay.»

Whoops.

Why are we still holding him in Guantánamo?

On the topic of torture, the position of George W. Bush and the Vulcans (and everybody who agrees with them) is simply barbaric and unworthy of a nation that considers itself enlightened.
