    October 17, 2016: After unlawfully imprisoning ACLU client Mohamedou Ould Slahi at Guantánamo for 14 years without charge or trial, the U.S. government has finally released him. He is now home in his native Mauritania.

    Mohamedou Slahi was a detainee at the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay since 2002. The U.S. government never charged him with a crime.

    Three years into his captivity, Mr. Slahi began a diary, of his daily life as a detainee. His diary is not merely a vivid record of a miscarriage of justice, but a deeply personal memoir---terrifying, darkly humorous, and surprisingly gracious. Guantánamo Diary is a document of immense emotional power and historical importance, and the first and only memoir by an imprisoned Guantánamo detainee.
