The torture papers : the road to Abu Ghraib( Book )

19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2,790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Torture Papers consists of the "torture memos" and reports written by U.S. government officials to prepare the way for and to legitimize coercive interrogation and torture in Afghanistan, Guantánamo, and Abu Ghraib. This volume of documents presents for the first time a compilation of materials that prior to publication have existed only piecemeal in the public domain. The Bush Administration, concerned about the legality of harsh interrogation techniques, understood the need to establish a legally viable argument to justify such procedures. The memos and reports in this volume document the systematic attempt of the U.S. government to prepare the way for torture techniques and coercive interrogation practices, forbidden under international law, with the express intent of evading legal punishment in the aftermath of any discovery of these practices and policies
The enemy combatant papers : American justice, the courts, and the War on Terror by Karen J Greenberg( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents the five major enemy combatant cases of the post-9/11 era. Assembled in narrative form, the documents tell the story of the legal arguments upon which the U.S. government and the defense attorneys have based their respective sides in what has become a complex and philosophically important debate among American lawyers, academics, and citizens. These cases involve two U.S. citizens, one Qatari citizen enrolled at an Illinois university, and two of the most prominent cases regarding Guantanamo detainees. Viewed together, the documents assembled herein in digested form illustrate the judicial struggle between the needs of national security and the constitutional and international legal protections regarding the rights of individuals."--BOOK JACKET
