The Senate CIA Torture Report is here.

It's time for the American people to stop believing false claims that 'torture works'.  And besides, even if it did work, that does not justify using it.

The situation

The Bush administration created the Guantánamo Bay prison in Cuba, a prison at Bagram air base in Afghanistan, and other offshore prisons as "law-free zones" that it believed were exempt from U.S. and international law, including the Geneva Conventions and the nearly 800-year-old writ of habeas corpus. The U.S. Supreme Court disagrees.

President Obama promised to close Guantánamo Bay prison, and his administration cleared more than 100 of the remaining prisoners for release, but Congress has halted transfers to a standstill. Other men there, at Bagram, and at other offshore prisons may also be wrongly held by the U.S. military. Some of these men cannot safely return to their home countries. Unfortunately, nine years of scare-mongering have taken a toll on Americans' commitment to human rights for detainees.

Be part of the solution

Join No More Guantánamos in a grassroots initiative of concerned citizens, communities, organizations, and pro-bono attorneys representing detainees to:
  • Engage the public in a fact-based dialogue about the planned closure of Guantánamo Bay prison and U.S. detainee policy
  • Transform prisoners’ images in the U.S. from faceless, nameless “terrorists” to human beings who deserve human rights and a presumption of innocence until proven guilty
  • Use prisoners’ stories to overcome unfounded fears of prisoners in your community


  • Updated toolkit to support grassroots public education about the planned closure of  Guantánamo Bay prison, using prisoners' stories to overcome musunderstandings about the prisoners.
  • Bagram Prison annotated list of prisoners compiled by Andy Worthington


There are 40 detainees still at Guantánamo Bay prison; about half were cleared of any connection to terrorism years ago.

The prison at Bagram air force base in Afghanistan currently holds more than 1,500 detainees.
