Read “Guantánamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi
For 14 long years, ACLU client Mohamedou Slahi was unlawfully imprisoned by the U.S. government despite never being charged with a crime. Thirteen of those years were at Guantánamo Bay prison, where he was subjected to gruesome torture, suffering systematic physical abuse, sleep-deprivation, humiliation, and psychological terror. Before he was released, ACLU helped fight to declassify and publish his “Guantánamo Diary,” a chilling true story of the United States’ worst abuses in the post-9/11 era and a terrifying account of what happens to innocent people when the rule of law is suspended. For #100DaysTN, read and share chilling excerpts from Slahi’s account of Guantánamo, which Trump has promised to “load up” as President:
