  1. What a read Guantanamo Diary is; it should shame every US citizen into action action against torture, indefinite detention, and the practice of rendition.

    If a person owns that book and still supports torture, calling it “enhanced interrogation techniques,” I’d say there’s little hope for humanity in them
