article imageVideo: 'US drugged prisoners for false Gitmo confessions'

By Anne Sewell     Jul 13, 2012 in World
Investigative journalist, Jason Leopold, is one of many people wishing for the release of information that prisoners are drugged in order to extract confessions at Gitmo.
RT interviews Jason Leopold, who states that detainees in secret U.S. prisons, such as Guantanamo Bay, were drugged with mind-altering substances, including anti-psychotic drugs, in order to extract confessions.
A Pentagon watchdog report has apparently revealed that prisoners were interrogated while on medication, which places doubt on the validity of their confessions.
He states the case of a prisoner from Saudi Arabia, who confessed under interrogation that he was a member of al-Qaeda. This prisoner had been injected with the anti-psychotic drug Haldol and made the confession under the influence of this drug. The prisoner was kept locked up in Guantanamo Bay for three more years before being released and sent back to Saudi Arabia.
Leopold says that the U.S. was just looking to get confessions, whether they were in fact true, or false.
