Evidence of Torture Slated to Be Destroyed

The Guardian reports that a photo--one that could potentially verify claims of abuse made by Binyam Mohamed, a British resident detained at Guantanamo--remains classified and is slated to be destroyed.

The image, now held by the Pentagon, had been put on his cell door... because he had been beaten so badly that it was difficult for the guards to identify him.

...

Mohamed said: "The authorities have consistently denied that I have been abused, and this is physical evidence that I am telling the truth, and they are not."
