Guantanamo - Camp Delta: Official US Military Manual Leak ...

*

Never let it be said we don't give it to you straight - regardless of repercussions - we tell it how it is.



A never-before-seen military manual detailing the day-to-day operations of the U.S. military's Guantánamo Bay detention facility has been leaked to the web, affording a rare inside glimpse into the institution where the United States has imprisoned hundreds of suspected terrorists since 2002.

The 238-page document, "Camp Delta Standard Operating Procedures," is dated March 28, 2003. It is unclassified, but designated "For Official Use Only." It hit the web last Wednesday on Wikileaks.org.

The disclosure highlights the internet's usefulness to whistle-blowers in anonymously propagating documents the government and others would rather conceal. The Pentagon has been resisting -- since October 2003 -- a Freedom of Information Act request from the American Civil Liberties Union seeking the very same document.
Read the rest of this report via the "Wired" website.

Unfortunately Richard, nothing will ever happen to any of those responsible for this.

Nothing. Nowt. Nought. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

Much as I hate admitting it, I fear you're right, Kiwi. But one day, somehow, some where I'm sure they'll pay some kind of price.

Ha! Surprise, surprise. It looks like it's been "leaked" right back OFF the net. Didn't take them long did it?

That's FREEDOM US style. One phone call from the right guy to the right guy - and poof!

Is that censorship or is that censorship? Freedom? Don't make me laugh.

When the government responsible also "owns" the judiciary you can guarantee nothing will be done.

Damn them all to hell.
