LONGLISTED FOR THE SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE 2015 THE SUNDAY TIMES and NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Since 2002, Mohamedou Ould Slahi has been imprisoned at the detainee camp at GuantAinamo Bay, Cuba. In all these years, the United States has never charged him with a crime.

His diary is not merely a vivid record of a miscarriage of justice, but a deeply personal memoir - terrifying, darkly humorous, and surprisingly gracious. Published now for the first time, GuantAinamo Diary is a document of immense historical importance.A Council of Europe investigation has confirmed that a CIAleased Gulfstream jet with the tail number N379P departed ... the flight records is available at http:// assembly.coe.int/CommitteeDocs/2006/20060614_Ejdoc162006PartIIAppendix. pdf.
