Description

A Times investigation into the military's system of justice for foreign terror suspects reveals "new information about the physical and legal treatment of the detainees." Among the major stories the Times broke were: "the use of harsh methods to break a series of hunger strikes at Guantanamo; the largely secret evolution of the military detention facility at Bagram, Afghanistan into another Guantanamo-type facility; the reasons for the collapse of an ambitious two-year effort to prosecute military personnel for abuses at Bagram; the obstacles to American government efforts to repatriate many of the Guantanamo prisoners and the story of attempts by senior Bush Administration officials to press for sweeping changes in the detention system." The Times also reported on the power struggle between military officials and detainees for control of Guantanamo, a situation the military denied.
