Chicago Police Officer Tortures Detainees at Gitmo

Chicago Police Officer Tortures Detainees at Gitmo February 25, 2015

My former AINN colleague Spencer Ackerman was on the Rachel Maddow Show with a remarkable report on how a Chicago police officer named Richard Zuley was sent to Gitmo to interrogate a detainee, using torture that was directly approved by the White House. And apparently he engaged in much the same conduct while interrogating suspects in Chicago as well.

Spencer’s reporting in the Guardian can be seen here. It’s staggering to read, but not surprising. Chicago has a long history of torturing suspects to coerce confessions. It’s great to see Spencer getting the recognition he deserves. He is an incredibly good reporter with an encyclopedic knowledge of military and foreign policy matters.

"Thanks for being so forthright."
