The Alyona Show: "Gitmo 'Suicides' Raise Questions" (video)

From introduction to the video:
Of what we know, there are 779 prisoners who were sent to Guantanamo Bay under the Bush administration. Today, 171 remain. Some have been transferred or released; only one has been brought to trial in the US and sentenced to life in prison, and 8 died at the prison. The circumstances surrounding some of these deaths are mysterious, and a cause for debate and investigations. Truthout contributor Jeffrey Kaye discuss the deaths of two detainees.
The original story, Recently Released Autopsy Reports Heighten Guantanamo "Suicides" Mystery, examined the autopsies of two of the six Guantanamo "suicides" and found irregularities, unanswered questions, and startling new facts the government has withheld from the public for years. For instance, one detainee, Abdul Rahman Al Amri, was found hanged with his hands tied behind his back. The other deceased prisoner, Mohammad Al Hanashi, was said to have strangled himself to death with a type of underwear not used by detainees at the time.

There's more in the video and the Truthout article. Meanwhile, I will be continuing this investigation over the next weeks and months.
