    I m sorry to have to tell you, but the terrorists won And when I say terrorists I mean the Saudi team led by a Saudi millionaire Yep This book by Mohamedou Ould Slahi confirms it The 9 11 attacks achieved what was intended, and what was intended was clearly not just to topple the WTC towers What was intended was to spin the United States in a cycle of stupidity, violence, ignobility, and abuse to trap it in a mire of hate to force it to shed its ideals of justice and due process and adopt torture, unfairness, torment, blindness, corruption, kidnapping and irrationality as the guiding principles of its quest for peace to turn it into a terrorist state itself, pushing it to embrace terror as the best tool in its war on terrorism The terrorist attacks on 9 11 have turned the United States into an ideological oxymoron.And Slahi is a great narrator He shows us in great detail, not only the ramshackle state of intelligence gathering by government agencies the incompetence of interrogators the sadism of low ranking guards the amateurish, superficial, sophomoric knowledge of the Guant namo personnel about political, cultural, historical, geographical and even militaristic issues not to mention their ridiculous, comic book style moral building strategies and the invo...

    Guant namo Diary by Mohamedou Ould Slahi and Larry Siems Editor is a very thought provoking and disturbing book This man was arrested and released in 2002 Arrested again and then held, although the government where he was arrested could not understand why he was arrested but they were doing it for the Americans He was shipped to a couple of places until he arrived at Guantanamo Never charged with anything, held from 2002 then was finally told he was to be released in 2009 by Judge Robertson but Obama s administration appealed it so he went back to the pit of forgotten souls He kept a diary during his stay there and it is held by the government as top secret because they don t want their abusive ways known but of course we all know With the freedom of information act, some redacted pages were released and published here He describes what he went through, an...

    Let s be clear about a couple of things this is not a 5 star read in the way that War and Peace is a 5 star read While this book is actually quite nicely constructed, it is in the author s fourth language and contains too many colloquialisms for my liking In spite of that bit of prissiness on my part, I think it is one of the most important books of the past decade Now I know that there are a lot of my country, right or wrong morons out there that will take me to task on this and claim that I am opposed to liberty and hate the military and so on and so on.nothing could be further from the truth I believe that the profession of arms should be an honorable undertaking and that the military should be the staunchest defender of the principles that democracies are supposed to be built on Guantanamo Diary is the heavily and clumsily censored account of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a man who was kidnapped in Mauritania at the request of the US government, exported from Mauritania to Jordan for some softening up torture, and then on to Guantanamo for a good old long term butt ramming American style I basically knew nothing about Mauritania before reading the bo...

    In one of your better metafictional gambits, Mohamedou Ould Slahi has managed to get his memoir edited by his actual torturers Nabokov would have loved this I guess we call it redacted when it s CIA, whateverIt was edited again by actual literary people after a six year legal battle to get it out of Gitmo, where Slahi has been held since 2002 This second editing process provides some of the most entertaining moments of the book the latter s exasperated footnotes about the former It seems possible, if incredible, says literary editor Larry Siems, that the U.S government may have here redacted the word tears Siems had a lot of work to do, because and here s the problem with this book Slahi is a great cause but not a great writer As a book, this is shapeless, episodicamazingly, it s kinda boring If you want great literature about how the end never justifies the means, read Darkness at Noon.Slahi continues to rot in Gitmo as I write this in 2015, despite a judge ordering his release back in 2010 there s never really been any evidence against him His case, including his lengthy torture in Jordan and in Guantanamo Bay, is all a m...

    It was quite a relief to run the last lap of this memoir today knowing that it is literally the same 24 hour period in which Mohamedou Ould Slahi has finally been cleared for release after fourteen years of torture and isolation in Guantanamo without charges The perfect timing makes this true story far less grim than it would have been even just yesterday It seems to me that the U.S Government the interrogators at Gitmo have known for about a decade that this guy didn t do anything but join the Mujahideen while they were being funded, armed, and trained by the U.S. in order to battle the Soviets Didn t matter, being brown and Muslim after 9 11 was apparently reason enough to incarcerate, starve, freeze, punch, sexually assault, torture with a number of particularly devious methods adopted by the CIA during the Bush Years, and on top of it all, force Drowning Pool on Slahi for an approximate quarter of his life No, the Drowning Pool thing is no joke He mentions it at least three times in the book how he was made to listen to Let the Bodies Hit the Floor on repeat at full volume in a freezing room while chained into a stress position and sleep dep...

    Essential reading.Whilst it is upsetting, depressing and shocking, Mohamedou Ould Slahi is also inspirational and even funny in parts There are many insights into Guantanamo prison life but huge amounts left unsaid or redacted Arrest , rendition to, imprisonme...

    Mohamedou Ould Slahi wrote this diary in 2005 while in detention in Guant namo For years he was considered America s highest ranking terror suspect I don t know when that designation changed, or if it ever did In 2008 the U.S Supreme Court ruled that Guant namo detainees could challenge their detention through habeas corpus In 2009 U.S District Court Judge James Robertson heard Mohamedou s petition and in 2010 ordered his release Within weeks, Obama s administration filed a notice of appeal, sending the judge s decision back for review The case is still pending Mohamedou remains in U.S custody in Guant namo.An NYRB review by Steve Coll introduced me to this title It is, as Coll maintains, a remarkable document Mohamedou was targeted by U.S intelligence after the Millenium Bombing Plot in 1999, when Ahmed Ressam attempted to drive explosives from Montreal to Los Angeles Mohamedou claims not to have known Ressam, but he was living in Montreal at the time also After talking with his parents in Mauritania, he decided to return home rather than be surveilled by American intelligence agents As soon as he arrived in Senegal to be picked up by his family, he was detained for questioning by his own government...

    Update I am going to add slam poems that I feel match the feeling of the book.Sara Brickman Letter from the Water at Guantanamo Bay Why are Muslims So Hameedi Poem Postmarked for the Middle East Safi Brown Boy White House Whenever I realized that a guard was mean I pretended that I understood no English. We don t like you to speak English We want you to die slowly, he said No English, I kept replying I didn t want to give him the satisfaction that his message arrived People with hatred always have something to get off their chests, but I wasn t ready to be that drain I was afraid of reading this book, as I am sure many Muslims are, not only because it is told from the perspective of someone that in some way aided al Qaeda, but because with the current state of affairs it is not safe to claim Muslims have rights, it might be too dangerous, and my rights to exist and read can be controversial President Bush described his holy war against the so called terrorism as a war between the civilized and barbaric world But his government committed barbaric acts than the terrorists themselves I can name tons of war crimes that Bush s government is involved in So can I This is not a very well written book, but due to the nature of it, I cannot truly blame it I do however praise the political and social issues it brings forth My favourite were certain statements about certain superpowers that when I make now, people either ignore me, or try to correct me because I ca...
