80. Guantanamo's Most Tortured Prisoner: Mohamedou Ould Salahi

Today, we’ve got a classic On the Edge interviewee, in the form of Mohamedou Ould Salahi, who was detained in Guantanamo Bay for 14 years and is considered by some to be Guantanamo’s most tortured prisoner. Raised in the African country of Mauritania, before moving to Germany, Mohamedou was suspected of having links to terrorism after 9/11.

It should be noted that he had indeed been involved in al-Qaeda in the 90s, but this was before they were the terrorist group we know of who flew planes into the Twin Towers. In fact, Mohamedou was fighting alongside the Americans and other Allies with al-Qaeda against the Communist government of the time in Afghanistan. Yet after 9/11 he was arrested and sent to Guantanamo, where they tried to get information out of him about al-Qaeda.
