Guantanamo Files

The Guantanamo Files, based on over 700 classified files, have unravelled another sordid chapter in the American security apparatus' handling of detainees in Guantanamo Bay. My stomach flipped over a thousand times after reading that a 14-year-old kidnapped peasant was among the detainees. I am sure he was not the only one to be picked up at random. There must be many more who are too frail to even lift a gun. Before the latest WikiLeaks exposé, humanitarian groups severely criticised torture techniques such as waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and loud music. But what has been revealed now is worse.

The writing on the wall is clear: the unjust and illegal detention of many prisoners in Guantanamo have the potential to create more terrorists.

Shivnarayan Rajpurohit,

Bikaner
