tp100119harpers-guantanamo.jpgIn 2006, the Bush Administration announced that three prisoners—one from Yemen, two from Saudi Arabia—hanged themselves at Guantánamo Bay. Now, Harper's magazine is reporting that claim was false and that the Obama Administration is participating in an ongoing cover-up. Contributing editor Scott Horton reports that the alleged suicides were more likely deaths resulting from torture at a nearby camp run by the CIA. He bases his story on what he's been told by soldiers who were willing to let him use their names.
