Torture at Guantanamo and the Presidential Field

J. Wells Dixon is a Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he specializes in challenging unlawful detentions at the Guantánamo prison. Wells represents clients in federal court, before the military commissions at Guantánamo, and in various international proceedings. Among his clients are former Baltimore-area resident Majid Khan, who was imprisoned and tortured in secret CIA “black sites” for more than three years before he was transferred to Guantánamo.

Majid Khan recently alleged that the CIA has used sexual abuse and more forms of torture than were included in the Senate’s report.
