Guantanamo: The Definitive Prisoner List (Updated for 2010) | Andy Worthington

Worthington has updated his invaluable list of Guantanamo prisoners, including those released. He shows that most were arrested arbitrarily and were probably innocent.

He has also recently argued against the anti-Yemen hysteria of recent weeks being used as a pretext for not releasing dozens of Yemenis against whom no case for guilt could be built by prosecutors.

Another antidote to Yemen Hysteria: Waq al-Waq.

  1. On a related note of prisons and torture and persuasion and coercion

    The Jordanian double agent was recruited by his country's intelligence agency after it threw him in jail to coerce him into helping them track down al-Qaida's No. 2 leader

    … confirmed the account of al-Balawi's jailing and said his allegiance was to al-Qaida from the start — not with his Jordanian recruiters or their CIA friends — and never wavered.

    Jordanian intelligence thought he had been persuaded to support US and Jordanian efforts against al-Qaida.

    —————

    and all of the plans of the usa and jordan literally and figuratively blew up in their faces.
