Going After Gitmo

This from the Times:
One of the detainees, Mustafa Ait Idir, claims in the lawsuit that he was severely beaten while his hands were tied behind his back and that he later suffered a mild stroke.

''The guards picked him up and slammed his body and his head into the steel bunk in his cell,'' the lawsuit says. ''They then threw him on the floor and continued to pound his body and bang his head into the floor.''

The guards held his face in the toilet ''and repeatedly pressed the flush button,'' according to the lawsuit.

Hearts and minds indeed.
