Report Explores Possible CIA Cover-Up At Guantanamo

Scott Horton, contributing editor at Harper's Magazine, discussed his recent report detailing a potential CIA cover-up at Guantanamo Bay on HuffPost Live Monday.

In the article, "The Guantánamo "Suicides," Revisited," Horton's reporting shows that the death of three Guantanamo detainees may not have been caused by suicide as originally reported by the Pentagon.

"If we look at the original report that was released some years ago, about four years ago now, it gave a narrative of how these three prisoners committed suicide in their cells simultaneously and in a rather strange way," Horton explained. "When we reviewed that account with well-known medical examiners, they all had the same conclusion, which was: impossible. No one has ever committed suicide that way and it's pretty much impossible to do."
