Military Limits Information Regarding Detainees
Just days after journalists were allowed to report on the administrative review board hearings provided to detainees at Guantanamo, the "military has temporarily stopped providing the specific allegations against individual" detainees.
Previously, the military readily provided "fact summaries" detailing the accusations against individual detainees and whether they allegedly had links to al-Qaida terror network or the ousted Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
Navy Lt. Terry Green, a spokesman at Guantanamo, declined to explain why the military decided to limit the information it would make public. "Green said he could only provide information about whether hearings had taken place, the detainees' ages and how long they have been at Guantanamo."
