A note from lawyer Clive Stafford Smith who has just returned from another visit to Guantanamo Bay: The Worst of the Worst This has been my thirty-first visit to Guantánamo Bay, the notorious Cuban prison which, according to former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, houses the “worst of the worst” terrorists in the world. It has been a long time coming, but I believe I have finally seen the worst of the worst. Sad to say, the current military administration at the prison is the very worst in the decade since I first came here. General John Kelly and Colonel John Bogdan, the officers in charge, seem intent on repeating every mistake made by their predecessors, adding some fresh ones of their own. The mistreatment of prisoners has been exemplified by General Kelly’s approach to the hunger strike.

After being imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay for seven years, during which he was repeatedly interrogated and tortured, including being physically, sexually, and psychologically abused, Al Hajj was released without any charges held against him. Al Hajj, a journalist for the Al Jazeera network, was arrested in Pakistan in 2001 while on his way to do camerawork for the network concerning the war that had recently broken out in Afghanistan. It has been speculated by both Al Hajj’s lawyer, Clive Stafford Smith, and Reporters Without Borders that the main reason that he was incarcerated for so long was due to the US Miliary’s desire to make him an informant against Al Jazeera, as most of Al Hajj’s interrogations consisted of American interrogators questioning him about the (Al Jazeera) network. While in Guantanamo, Al Hajj wrote a poem titled Humiliated in Shackles to his son Mohammad: When I heard pigeons cooing in the trees, Hot tears covered my face. When the lark chirped, my thoughts composed A message f ...
