Scott Horton Talks About the Guantánamo “Suicides” on Democracy Now

Scott Horton discusses a document omitted from a report on three deaths at Guantánamo Bay Naval Base in 2006

Contributing editor Scott Horton appeared today on Democracy Now with Amy Goodman and Nermeen Shaikh, to discuss “The Guantánamo ‘Suicides,’ Revisited,” his Annotation from the June 2014 issue of Harper’s Magazine:

In the article, Horton looks at evidence contained in a document omitted from the public release of a Naval Criminal Investigative Service report on the deaths of three detainees at Guantánamo Bay Naval Base in June 2006. Horton raised questions about the NCIS’s conclusion that the deaths were suicides in a National Magazine Award–winning article that ran in the March 2010 issue of Harper’s. The men were in custody at a facility known as Penny Lane, which was used by the CIA to try to turn prisoners into double agents, as reported by the Associated Press last November.
