11-04-25 Guardian: Files of all Guantanamo Detainees // Guardian: Los archivos de todos los detenidos de Guantánamo // 卫报:关塔那摩监狱关押的所有文件 home

The Guardian published the full GITMO files.

For most detainees, the reason for their holding is to provide information regarding certain persons or place (e.g. mosques from Germany to Pakistan).
  • To the degree that the information was needed for prosecutions - obviously, such prosecutions never took place, at times for almost 10 years.
  • To the degree that the information was needed for intelligence purposes, it is doubted that in the years that transpired, interrogation was not concluded, and that any intelligence that old is of any value any longer.
