Inside the American Gulag

Now that the Supreme Court has seen fit to affirm a variety of rights of terror suspects held at Guantanamo, a new book is out exposing the harsh realities of Gitmo — the diet on which detainees have gained weight — the soccer fields and basketball courts — the letters home about mild weather and beautiful sunsets — and the detainees who don’t want to leave. All of this and more is in Honor Bound: Inside the Guantanamo Trials by Kyndra Rotunda, an Army Reserve Major and member of the Military Commissions Prosecution Team. Learn more about the place that has been compared to Auschwitz and the Gulag, which houses probably the healthiest, best fed, least inconvenienced prisoners of war (or whatever they are) in human history.
