Stephen Grey, writing in The New Statesman, called the book: "a powerful, essential and long-overdue piece of research".

Worthington has made numerous radio and television appearances as a commentator on Guantanamo since the publication of the book.

His two earlier books were: Stonehenge: Celebration & Subversion and The Battle of the Beanfield.The first book concerns modern celebrations at the ancient astronomical site, and the differing interpretations of modern celebrants.The second book concerns a large confrontation between police and new age celebrants traveling to Stonehenge on 1 June 1985.

On June 16 2009 Worthington published new information on the death of Ibn Al Shaykh Al Libi.

Al Libi was the former director of the Khaldan training camp, and during his interrogation in the CIA's network or secret interrogation camps, he confessed to hosting trainers from Saddam Hussein's Iraqimarker administration, who trained Al Qaeda bombers how to use Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. When it became clear that there were no ties between Saddam and Al Qaeda Al Libi disappeared from the public record. It turned out that he had been transferred to Libyanmarker custody. Human rights workers relocated him in mid-May 2009, only to be informed by Libyan authorities that he killed himself on June 1 2009.

Worthington reported that former Guantanamo captive, United Kingdom resident, and citizen of Libya Omar Deghayes was his link to a source within Libya who had spoken with Al Libi prior to his death.Based on his Libyan source Worthington was able to offer a more detailed timeline of Al Libi's last years.
