Kafka in Amerika

Hauled before a military tribunal at the American naval base in Guantánamo Bay, the detainee, picked up in Afghanistan, asked why he was being held. For association with a member of al-Qaeda he was told. Give me his name, the detainee demanded. The tribunal’s president said he didn’t know it. Nor did any of the tribunbal’s other members. „How can I respond to this?“ the detainee cried before being taken back to his cell to continue his detention, perhaps for the rest of his life. [Economist 6.10., S. 65]
