"An unprecedented international publishing event: the first and only diary written by a still-imprisoned Guantánamo detainee. Since 2002, Mohamedou Slahi has been imprisoned at the detainee camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. In all these years, the United States has never charged him with a crime. Although he was ordered released by a federal judge, the U.S. government fought that decision, and there is no sign that the United States plans to let him go. Three years into his captivity Slahi began a diary, recounting his life before he disappeared into U.S. custody and daily life as a detainee. His diary is not merely a vivid record of a miscarriage of justice, but a deeply personal memoir---terrifying, darkly humorous, and surprisingly gracious. Published now for the first time, GUANTÁNAMO DIARY is a document of immense historical importance"--
The diary of a still-imprisoned Guantánamo detainee traces the events that led to his imprisonment, his firsthand experiences, and his ongoing incarceration in spite of a federal judge's order for his release.

Very well written. Horribly sad situation, but he seems to do a beautiful job living despite everything he's endured.

Maybe skip the very long and detailed introduction, unless you are writing an essay on this case.

I understand the anger and frustration of the U.S. about terrorist attacks. But jumping on innocent individuals and making them suffer, looking for fake confessions, doesn't help anybody.
