Abstract
This sobering report by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley adds a new chapter to the chronicle of America’s dismal descent into the netherworld of prisoner abuse since the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Carefully researched and devoid of rhetoric, it traces the missteps that disfigured an internationally admired nation and tainted its self-proclaimed ideals of humane treatment and justice
for all. Through the voices of detainees formerly held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan and
Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the report provides new insights into the lingering consequences of unjust
detention and the corrupted processes developed in the desperate months following 9/11.
