Publish the Zubaida Papers!

Posted by stoptorture on 20th December 2007

The CIA torture tapes may have gone down the memory hole, but the Zubaida Papers probably have not. Apparently, “classified daily summaries” about Zubaida’s torture are probably still be out there in the hands of the FBI, CIA, and others. The existence of the Zubaida Papers was reported by the Washington Post.

Perhaps it is easy to delete a few tapes, but a paper trail leading through the offices of various members of government is much harder to destroy.

Somebody must have those “daily summaries.” Congress should subpoena those papers and make them public. His lawyers should request them in court. It is also time for a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Maybe somebody just might post them on the specialist government transparency site:

Let all of the above happen all at once. Time for the truth. Publish the Zubaida Papers!
