“Black jail” in Afghanistan

Weeks of detention without access to the Red Cross.
Windowless cells with lights that never go off.
Accusations of beatings.

Not under Bush. Now.

Up until last week, my tendency was to brush off such accusations. As long as Phil Carter was in charge of detainee affairs, I had complete confidence that the right things were being done. This week Carter quit. For “personal reasons.”

I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.
