Another American Atrocity:
Adnan Latif, a Guantánamo prisoner who was on a hunger strike to protest his innocence, died this past Saturday. Latif, a Yemeni man who had spent more than a decade in Guantánamo, was identified today. He had been accused of training with the Taliban, though he denied this accusation and was never charged. Military reports show Latif was cleared, but remained held in Guantánamo because the U.S. does not allow prisoners to return to Yemen, as it considers the country unstable. Yet, 55 of the 167 Guantánamo prisoners are Yemeni. Latif was the ninth prisoner to die in Guantánamo.
