Mohamedou Ould Slahi, Larry Siems Book and Novel

Mohamedou Ould Slahi, Larry Siems - Authors

Mohamedou Slahi was born in Mauritania. He left the country at the age of eighteen, on a scholarship to study in Germany. In the early 1990s, he interrupted his studies and went to Afghanistan to join al-Qaida units fighting (with American support) the Soviet-backed government in Kabul. He returned to Germany in 1992 completing his engineering degree. He lived and worked in Germany for many years before moving briefly to Canada and then returning home to Mauritania in 2000. In November 2001, he turned himself in to Mauritanian authorities at their request. At the direction of the United States government, he was rendered to Jordan, then to Afghanistan and finally to Guantanamo. He has been a prisoner at Guantanamo since August 2002. The United States government has never charged him with a crime. Larry Siems is director of the Freedom to Write and International Programs at PEN American Center and the author of The Torture Report: What the Documents Say About America's Post-9/11 Torture Program. He lives in New York.
