Guantanamo "suicide" story sickening

I had seen a reference, probably on Andrew Sullivan's blog, but didn't get a chance to read Scott Horton's Harper's magazine piece until last night. It should be universally shocking but has gotten little attention that there's strong circumstantial evidence that the three 2006 "suicides" at Guantanamo (described then as insidious asymetric warfare) were probably killed while being tortured. Not proven yet, but the official story looks thoroughly discredited. Hard to process it. This post has many of the important links.
