SOUTHCOM’s General Kelly files a declaration with the court that draws on an investigation into the death of Adnan Latif to justify a policy of genital searches at Guantanamo. It’s no surprise that he misrepresents the conclusions of that report for his own purposes. Those conclusions paint a damning picture of command failure and non-accountability at the Cuban-based U.S. prison.

Unsatisfying in its conclusions, a new Department of Defense report on the suicide of Guantanamo detainee Adnan Farhan Abd Latif, describes a healthcare and guard-detention regime at the Cuban-based US military base that is unprofessional, sloppy, confused, and subservient to military command. But even worse is the Joint Task Force – Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO) command, who failed to implement what SOUTHCOM investigators described as “many of the required changes identified in previous detainee death investigations.”
