Daryl Matthews was a participant or observer in the following events:
In an article published by the Guardian of London, Daryl Matthews, a forensic psychiatrist who worked at Guantanamo, describes the difference between Guantanamo and an ordinary US prison. “[A]t Guantanamo there’s an added level of stress, and I think that is the thing that’s somewhat unique. Inmates in a normal prison are focused on how much time they are going to serve, on contacting their lawyers, on being able to take constructive efforts to get out; these are important ways prisoners deal with the stress of confinement, and these guys can’t do anything.”
