 Raymond Bonner

Raymond Bonner

is an American investigative reporter for The New York Times. He has also contributed to The New York Review of Books

Bonner is perhaps best known as one of two journalists (the other was

Alma Guillermoprieto
of The Washington Post) who broke the story of the

El Mozote
massacre, in which some 900 villagers at El Mozote, El Salvador, were slaughtered by the Salvadoran army in December, 1981. A Times staff reporter at the time, Bonner was smuggled by FMLN rebels to visit the site approximately a month after the massacre took place. When the story broke simultaneously in the Post and Times on January 27, 1982, it was dismissed as propaganda by the Reagan administration, as it seriously undermined efforts by the US government to bolster the human rights image of the Salvadoran government, which the US was supporting with large amounts of military aid. The Times was strongly criticized by the US government for running the story, and the newspaper was pressured to pull Bonner moved from the Central American desk. He left the Times shortly thereafter but still contributes to the paper as a freelance correspondent.

In 1992, the details of the massacre as first reported by Bonner and Guillermoprieto were verified, with widespread repercussions. logo

According to Raymond Bonner at ProPublica, there was a news report from ProPublica in February of 2017 which stated Haspel was in charge of a black site for the CIA in Thailand. There, she reportedly oversaw the torture of Abu Zubaydah, a man who at the time was thought to be a leader in al-Qaeda.
As Raymond Bonner described it at propublica on 22 February 2017:chief of base and another senior counterterrorism official on scene had the sole authority power to halt the questioning. She never did so, records show, watching as Zubaydah vomited, passed out and urinated on himself while shackled.
Raymond Bonner of ProPublica now reports that Haspel did not arrive at the site in Thailand until after the interrogation of Zubaydah. Filkins told Vox that he stands by his reporting.
