How Much Has Really Changed at America’s ‘Black Prison’?

< 1 min

Foreign Policy, 26 July 2013

Foreign Policy reports on AAN’s latest dispatch on Bagram detention centre, describing how AAN has found that the US military continue to hold and interrogate Afghan detainees in Afghanistan, including at the notorious ‘Black Prison’ on Bagram Airbase, and continue to practice sleep deprivation. The author, Elias Groll, asks how much has really changed:

“In short, waterboarding and torture is out, sleep deprivation is in, and the Afghan government is now in nominal control of its countries jails, while U.S. guards hover in the background.

How much has really changed is very much up for debate.”
