For years, current and former detainees from Guantanamo and other US military sites, as well as their attorneys, have argued that they were forcibly given pills and injected with unknown medications. Often, they alleged that this happened during or immediately prior to interrogation sessions. And now, thanks to a Freedom of Information Act Request filed by Truthout, a report from the DOD's deputy inspector general has confirmed much of it. Alyona talks to Jason Leopold, lead investigative reporter for Truthout.org about what the FOIA exposed.
