In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Gitmo: More Than 150 Totally Innocent

WikiLeaks: Guantanamo Bay terrorist secrets revealed

Guantanamo Bay has been used to incarcerate dozens of terrorists who have admitted plotting terrifying attacks against the West – while imprisoning more than 150 totally innocent people, top-secret files disclose.

25 April 2011 - Al-Qaeda terrorists have threatened to unleash a “nuclear hellstorm” on the West if Osama Bin Laden is caught or assassinated, according to documents to be released by the WikiLeaks website, which contain details the interrogations of more than 700 Guantanamo detainees.

However, the shocking human cost of obtaining this intelligence is also exposed with dozens of innocent people sent to Guantanamo – and hundreds of low-level foot-soldiers being held for years and probably tortured before being assessed as of little significance.

The Daily Telegraph, along with other newspapers including The Washington Post, today exposes America’s own analysis of almost ten years of controversial interrogations on the world’s most dangerous terrorists. This newspaper has been shown thousands of pages of top-secret files obtained by the WikiLeaks website.

The disclosures are set to spark intense debate around the world about the establishment of Guantanamo Bay in the months after 9/11 – which has enabled the US to collect vital intelligence from senior Al Qaeda commanders but sparked fury in the middle east and Europe over the treatment of detainees.

The files detail the background to the capture of each of the 780 people who have passed through the Guantanamo facility in Cuba, their medical condition and the information they have provided during interrogations. {continued}

Military Documents Detail Life At Guantanamo

April 25, 2011 - Thousands of pages of previously secret military documents about detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison now put a name, a history and a face on hundreds of men in captivity there. The documents include details on 158 men on whom no information has ever been released.

The hundreds of classified documents — marked "secret" and "noforn," meaning the information is not to be shared with representatives of other countries — are assessments, interviews and internal memos from the Pentagon's Joint Task Force at Guantanamo. The task force was supposed to determine who the detainees were, how they might be connected to terrorism and whether they posed a threat to the U.S. and its allies in the future.

The files are part of a trove of classified information that was leaked last year to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. They were made available to The New York Times by another source, on condition of anonymity. NPR is reporting on the documents with the Times. {continued with links to Docs and Cuts From}

Gitmo files on Australians 'not accurate'

25 April 2011 - The former lawyer for David Hicks, an Australian convicted of providing support for terrorism, says US intelligence files regarding Guantanamo Bay detainees are not accurate.

The documents, leaked to WikiLeaks last year and made available Sunday to the media, outline assessments of all 780 suspects who have passed through Guantanamo Bay, including Mr Hicks and fellow Australian Mamdouh Habib.

Files in the cache show US authorities believed that a large proportion of the detainees at the camp were innocent or only low-level activists.

Of those who were held at the camp, around 150 were described as effectively innocent and another 380 were described as low-level operatives.

There are startling details about plots revealed in interrogations, including that a nuclear weapon has been secreted in Europe for detonation should Osama Bin Laden be captured.

Mr Hicks was described as a "high-risk" detainee who allegedly posed a threat to the US and its allies.

He was relocated to an Australian prison in 2007 after pleading guilty to providing material support for terrorism and has since been released.

Stephen Kenny, who represented Mr Hicks, says the documents read like a prosecution brief contain large allegations.

"I know from looking at some of them that the allegations contained in them are not accurate or are beliefs that the person who wrote them may have, but that belief sometimes is not founded in reality," he said. {continued}
