Andy Worthington is back to discuss what’s happening down at Guantanamo Bay. This time there is a positive development. A judge has ruled that statements gathered from the so-called “Clean Team” interrogations of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri cannot be used against him. Scott gives some background on what the “Clean Team” interrogations were before the two discuss the specifics of al-Nashiri’s situation. They also detail how he was tortured. Finally, Worthington explains the status of the men who remain at Guantanamo.
