    What a shameful episode of American history.

    One that isn't completely over yet.

    How sad.

      We're mentally (and would you be surprised if physically?) abusing new innocent people at Bagram every day.

        The U.S. military holds some 1700 detainees at a prison on the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan - nearly ten times as many as remain at Guantanamo. But unlike at Guantanamo, prisoners in Afghanistan don't have the right to legal representation or to challenge or even to see the secret evidence being used against them.
