Guantanamo detainees 'can't mention torture'

Guantanamo detainees 'can't mention torture' [Right, neither can The New York Times and The Washington Post, which refers to it as 'enhanced interrogation techniques.'] 23 Oct 2013 Lawyers for Guantanamo Bay detainees accused of the 9/11 attacks say their defendants' rights were violated because they are prevented from open discussion of alleged mistreatment in secret prisons. Speaking at a hearing in Guantanamo as the five detainees listened, lawyers for the men asked for the death penalty to be eliminated as a possible sentence in light of alleged torture the inmates had undergone while being held by the US, before their 2006 transfer to Guantanamo. Detainees could not file complaints under the UN Convention against Torture, their lawyers said, because their treatment in US detention was a classified matter.
