Bagram Collection Point followups

Here are a few more articles relating to the prison abuse at Bagram Collection Point in Afghanistan during 2002:
  • An AP article details the plea bargain of one of the soldiers (Specialist Cammack) described in the New York Times series. Specialist Cammack was the last soldier to beat a detainee, who died only a few minutes later (according to the New York Times); he received three months in prison.

  • The Star Tribune reports that there may be two different death certificates for one of the prisoners discussed in the New York Times articles.

  • CNN has two articles covering reactions to the New York Times articles. One discusses the UN's reaction, and the other covers president Karzai's reaction.
