Exclusive: Gitmo lawyer interviewed
The Talking Dog brings us an exclusive interview with Gitmo lawyer Joshua Denbeaux. Denbaux is the co-author of two stunning reports published earlier this year. These reports are the first detailed analysis of data recently made public by the government on the Guantanamo Bay detainees. These data included the government's accusations against the detainee and the official account of the circumstances of his capture. It was Denbaux and his colleagues who discovered that 55% of the detainees held at Gitmo hadn't committed any hostile acts against the USA, by the government's own estimation.
In the interview Denbaux discusses his work on behalf of two Gitmo detainees, answers criticisms levied against his report by the Pentagon, and talks about what lies ahead in the struggle for human rights and transparency at Guatanamo.
