Still Locked Away in Guantánamo

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 17 February 2012

Words of a man cleared for release - yet still locked away in Guantánamo:

"Please torture me the old way. Here they destroy people mentally and physically without leaving marks.”
Shaker [Aamer] also explained that he "does not expect President Obama to do anything better than his predecessor, President Bush. Presidents are, he thinks, hemmed in by the powers that surround them." In his own words, “The White House is a straitjacket. You just wear it.”
