What are prisoners reading at Guantanamo Bay? Harry Potter books top the request list for Al Qaeda and Taliban detainees, says the camp librarian. Agatha Christie mysteries are next in popularity. Presumably that doesn’t count the Koran.
According a report on a tour of the Guantanamo camp, not all prisoners are wild about Harry.
In another (session), a female interrogator took an unusual approach to wear down a detainee, reading a Harry Potter book aloud for hours. He turned his back and put his hands over his ears.
Maybe she planned to stop at an exciting place and refuse to go on unless he cooperated.
