Former Guantanamo Detainees Speak About Their Experiences
By Daphne Eviatar 11/2/09 4:30 PM

The American Civil Liberties Union has just released a video of interviews with five former Guantanamo detainees, talking about their experiences of abuse in U.S. custody. Its not easy to watch, but its certainly worthwhile.

Although the video (after the jump) doesnt give any sense of why these men in particular were seized and detained by the United States and whether any of them did anything to attract U.S. government attention, the fact that all the men were eventually released without charge suggests, at least, that the Bush administrations claim that they were among the worst of the worst didnt turn out to be true.

The video also gives a strong sense of how and why the Guantanamo detention center, and the treatment of the men imprisoned there, ended up being a powerful recruiting tool for al-Qaeda.
