He Knew Nothing

Abu Zubaida, the US’s most famous torture victim, provided practically nothing to his US torturers, because he didn’t know much of anything about Al Qaeda. This article links to the original story in the Washington Post, but the author, Froomkin, gives the journalistic history of this story which goes all the way back to Ron Suskind originally reporting it in 2006. No one else had the guts to follow up on Suskind until Bush was out of office.   Also, recently freed torture victim Binyam Mohamed, who is a major figure in the British press, tells the world that a female prisoner was tortured when he was being held at Bagram AFB in Afghanistan, and he identifies the victim.
