04/26/11 – Jason Leopold – The Scott Horton Show

by | Apr 26, 2011 | Interviews

Investigative reporter Jason Leopold discusses sometime-collaborator Jeffrey Kaye’s article “Guantanamo Detainee Files Hint at Psychological Research;” the great American hero Bradley Manning; the WikiLeaks Guantanamo files that reveal bad intelligence on detainees, many of whom were held for ten years without being suspected of terrorism; how Gitmo served as a propaganda and double-agent production facility; how antiamalarial drugs may have exacerbated the conditions of 100 mentally ill and suicidal prisoners; the proof that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld knew most Gitmo inmates were innocent; Chris Floyd’s take on the NYT’s horrendous Guantanamo coverage; and the Gitmo defense lawyers who can’t use WikiLeaks documents to make their cases, and think Obama is worse than Bush on government abuse of the classification system.
