James Corbett Reports: "Dr. Jeffrey Kaye on the Guantanamo 'Suicides'" (podcast)

On March 14, I was interviewed by James Corbett, whose show, The Corbett Report, runs both on radio and podcast. It was an excellent interview by the always well-informed and intelligent Mr. Corbett. The discussion ranges from the new questions around the 2007 and 2009 suicides at Guantanamo, to the political problems surrounding the issue of closing Guantanamo, and the difficulties in mobilizing the US public on accountability for torture and abuse during an electoral year, where the "liberal" Democratic Party candidate, Barack Obama, maintains his policy is to "not look back" and investigate or prosecute these crimes.

From The Corbett Show introduction to the podcast:
Dr. Jeffrey Kaye talks to us about his latest article, “Recently Released Autopsy Reports Heighten Guantanamo ‘Suicides’ Mystery.” We discuss the anomalies he has uncovered in the official documents detailing the “suicides” that have taken place at Guantanamo. We also discuss the Guantanamo issue and its place in the greater political context of the Obama administration.
Start listening now.

For those interested, see also my video interview (somewhat shorter than the podcast) on the same subject at The Alyona Show.
