Gitmo Detainee Files Working Thread

Hi folks, HUGE document dump tonight from the New York Times, NPR, Guardian, El Pais and even the Washington Post tagging in. Heck, just about everybody has them; probably the only people who won’t be able to read the files are …. the detainees themselves who, of course, are currently effectively precluded from discussing such things with their lawyers.

At any rate, I am plowing through Charlie Savage’s material at the NYT, and there have been numerous individual filings by the Times tonight. I am going to give the various links in the order they came across the wire tonight and open the floor for discussion:

Initial NYT Article

Second NYT Article

Third NYT Article

Fourth NYT Article

Fifth NYT Article

Official Response From Us Govt.

Overall updated joint NYT/NPR Database

Feel free to link and quote into comments anything from any other sources you feel appropriate. Happy hunting!

bmaz @ggreenwald @benwizner I really wanted to be ED BALLS, but will settle for First Sea Lord.

bmaz @DevlinBarrett @johnson_carrie No kidding. I am not sure why anybody, including notably the press, ever gave the thought credence.

bmaz Missouri Gov. @GovJayNixon is an embarrassment to his state. If he won't appoint a special prosecutor, he should be recalled from office.

bmaz The Obama White House wouldn't lift a finger to fight for Goodwin Liu, but will go to mat for Wall St. bankster Weiss http://t.co/xH4YNe3eOM
