The U.S. government has ruled that the prisoners kidnapped and tortured by the U.S. cannot talk about their experiences because those experiences are the property of the U.S. government, which has classified them as secret national security information. This means the prisoners’ personal stories, recollections and experiences cannot be told in any open court, recounted to journalists or human rights groups, nor can they be heard by international bodies like the United Nations.
