On June 9, 2006 three inmates at Guantanamo Bay prison died sudden and violent deaths. The official report on the incidents classified them as suicides. In 2010, Harper’s contributing editor Scott Horton wrote an article ("The Guantanamo 'Suicides'") questioning the government’s narrative about the deaths. He talks about what new documents and testimony he has obtained can tell us about the deaths and a possible government cover-up.
