Honigsberg's Guantanamo Truth Commission

January 16, 2009

Peter Jan Honigsberg outlined his proposal to establish a truth commission that will gather the stories of Guantanamo survivors in a column published this month in The Huffington Post.

While other suggestions for truth commissions have focused primarly on congressional investigations of the Bush administration, Honigsberg is interested in reaching out to former Guantanamo detainees—"men who were imprisoned, inhumanely treated, sensory deprived, and tortured."

The Guantanamo Truth Commission plans to publish its findings, offer recommendations, and archive interviews and data. The commission hopes that the gathered information will be used by the new administration and future historians, lessening the likelihood of similar atrocities being committed in the future.
