In October 2001, nineteen-year-old Murat Kurnaz traveled to
Pakistan to visit a madrassa. During a security check a few weeks
after his arrival, he was arrested without explanation and for a
bounty of $3,000, the Pakistani police sold him to U.S. forces. He
was first taken to Kandahar, Afghanistan, where he was severely
mistreated, and then two months later he was flown to Guantanamo as
Prisoner #61. For more than 1,600 days, he was tortured and lived
through hell. He was kept in a cage and endured daily
interrogations, solitary confinement, and sleep deprivation.
Finally, in August 2006, Kurnaz was released, with acknowledgment
of his innocence. Told with lucidity, accuracy, and wisdom,
Kurnaz's story is both sobering and poignant - an important
testimony about our turbulent times when innocent people get caught
in the crossfire of the war on terrorism.
