"During his yearlong tour of duty, Sergeant Joseph Hickman saw Guantánamo from the inside--the chaotic prisons, the detainee abuse--and stumbled onto a mystery, a secret facility he and his fellow soldiers labeled "Camp No." When, on June 9, 2006, three prisoners died while Hickman was on duty, all supposed suicides, he knew something was seriously wrong. So began his epic search for the truth, an odyssey that would lead him to conclude that the US government was using Guantánamo not just as a prison, but as a training ground for interrogators to test advanced torture techniques. For the first time, Hickman details the inner workings of Camp Delta: the events surrounding the deaths of three prisoners, the orchestrated cover-up, and the secret facility at the heart of it all. From his own eyewitness account and a careful review of thousands of documents, he deconstructs the government's explanation of what happened and proves that the military not only tortured prisoners, but lied about their deaths. By revealing Guantánamo's true nature, Sergeant Hickman opens an important window onto government overreach, secrecy, and one man's principled search for the truth."--Book jacket.
