RT TV Discusses IG Report Cover--up of Drugging of Detainees

RT TV had a segment on 9/26 that followed from my Truthout article earlier this month, New Revelations Suggest DoD Cover-Up Over Detainee Drugging Charges. They initially asked me to be interviewed, but I couldn't be available in time, and they instead turned to journalist and human rights attorney Scott Horton, who was quoted in the article.

The following is from RT's YouTube blurb for the video:
According to a recent report on by Jeffrey Kaye (, detainees at Gitmo were drugged by the Pentagon staff. The prison which has been open for nearly a decade, has many questioning the validity and legality of site and the torture techniques implemented there. Now it seems the US Department of Defense is attempting to cover up allegations of drugging prisoners at Gitmo. So why does Gitmo remain in open and what really goes on there? Scott Horton, a contributing editor for Harper's Magazine, joins us with his take on the legality of Gitmo and how it could be hurting the US in the long run.
