For the first time, a senior Bush administration official responsible for reviewing practices at Guantanamo has publicly stated that a detainee was tortured.

Retired former judge Susan Crawford told the Washington Post that the treatment of suspected terrorist Mohammed al-Qahtani “met the legal definition of torture”.

Judge Crawford dismissed war crimes charges against al-Qahtani in May 2008 but he remains at Guantanamo.
