"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

How Long, O Lord, How Long?

Scott Horton says:

[The] account [of what Army Private Brandon Neely, who served as a prison guard at Guantánamo in the first years the facility was in operation, saw and did there] demonstrates once more how much the Bush team kept secret and how little we still know about their comprehensive program of official cruelty and torture.
Actually, we know quite a bit about it.

The question is: when are are we going to believe it?
