View from Guantanamo: A Conversation with Andy Worthington

On August 9, World Can't Wait activists across the country were privileged to be in on an hour long conversation with Andy Worthington, author of the Guantanamo Files and numerous articles exposing the abuse and torture of those the U.S. has designated "enemy combatants" and beyond the reach of any law. The conversation ranged from the origins of systematic torture at the very beginnings of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, to the significance of the continued denial of habeas corpus rights to the prisoners caught in the U.S. dragnet, to the ways in which the Obama administration is continuing, with slight modification, the policies of the Bush Regime towards the Geneva Convention and the treatment of prisoners snared in its war of terror.

Listen here to the conversation with Andy (starting about 3 1/2 minutes into recording).


World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
