Aberrations of Bush undermined US

Kourosh Ziabari - Froeign Policy Journal: Andy Worthington is a British investigative journalist and historian. His recent book "The Guantanamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America's Illegal Prison" is a key resource of information for those who want to have a collection of detailed dossiers of Guantanamo captives, their nationalities, family background and the illegal excuses for which they had been jailed.

He has opened up several cases to investigate the terrible and heart-rending methods of torturing which the prisoners of America's undergrounds jails have been subject to during the tenure of George Bush.

He has also unveiled that Dick Cheney, the then-Vice President of U.S was a prominent accomplice of the criminal treatments with teenager prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, such as Mohammed El-Gharani, the 14-years old Saudi boy who spent one-third of his life in the custody of America and has been persecuted in the most humiliating and shameful manners.

In an exclusive interview, Andy Worthington revealed that Guantanamo prison is now an international cage with detainees from 47 countries who are mainly put there without any habeas corpus, trial or official charge.
