Three Months after Latif’s Death, “Transparent” Gitmo Reveals Acute Pneumonia

Roughly 11 years to the day after he was captured by Pakistanis to be sold for bounty and over 3 months after his death, Adnan Latif has returned to Yemen, a partly-decayed corpse.

In the statement announcing his remains have been repatriated, Gitmo revealed a new detail about how he died.

The medical examiner also concluded that acute pneumonia was a contributing factor in his death.

You gotta ask why a guy with acute pneumonia was put in solitary. I also wonder whether years of forced feeding contributes to pneumonia?

Not to worry, though, because Gitmo says they take care of detainees. Here’s the last paragraph of the statement:

Joint Task Force Guantanamo continues to provide safe, humane, and lawful care and custody of detainees. This mission is being performed professionally, transparently, and humanely by the men and women of Joint Task Force Guantanamo. [my emphasis]

It took two and a half months to learn Latif committed suicide. We’re only now learning he suffered from acute pneumonia. And we still do not officially know how badly his head injury–the one the government claims didn’t really exist so they could keep him detained–expressed itself while at Gitmo, much less the drugs he was being given, ostensibly for that and mental health problems.

Don’t worry though. Gitmo operates transparently.

May you rest in peace, Adnan.
