Abstract:

"The orange jumpsuits of the blindfolded prisoners at Gitmo, the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, are already one of the enduring images of our post-9/11 world. Were these prisoners "the hardest of the hard-core" Al Qaeda terrorists, ruthless men "involved in a plot to kill thousands of ordinary Americans," as the Bush administration has maintained? And has their continued imprisonment been a necessary weapon in the war against terror, preventing further murders and providing an invaluable trove of intelligence?"

"In Guantanamo, award-winning writer David Rose disproves these claims. Based on his firsthand research in Cuba, government documents, and dozens of interviews with guards, intelligence officials, military lawyers, and former detainees, Rose argues that the camp not only constitutes a grotesque abuse of human rights, but it is also ineffective as a tool for combating terrorism. Meanwhile, America has abandoned its founding principles and drawn worldwide condemnation for creating its very own concentration camp."--Page 4 of cover.
