Guantanamo Drawings

I am currently in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, drawing for VICE.

I’m covering the pretrial hearings of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, which you can read the first installment of.

And traveled to Camp X-ray, the temporary prison that held the first prisoners while Gitmo’s permanent facilities were being constructed after 9/11. The article is also up now.

I’ll be in GTMO for the rest of the week. You can follow along on Twitter: @mollycrabapple

Bradley Manning and Us

Loyalty is life and death for soldiers. But like courage, it’s a morally neutral virtue. Its morality depends on how you view the cause it serves. Like any whistleblower, Manning may have betrayed his institution, but he did so out of loyalty to humanity.

My piece on loyalty, truth, and Bradley Manning commissioned by Creative Time Reports, and also in The Guardian, “Bradley Manning and Us.”
