Wikileaks shakes Washington’s foundations again: The Guantánamo Files

In what appears to be another series of suspense, Wikileaks has begun publishing instalments of quite sensitive documents, keeping the world on tenterhooks, while some rub their hands with delight and others grind their teeth in despair.

The first delivery, on April 24, 2011, contains 779 secret files from the infamous Guantánamo Bay prison, the detainees, the workings of US intelligence, and the practice of torture known as “waterboarding”, a form of controlled drowning.

According to Wikileaks, “thousands of pages of documents dating from 2002 to 2008 and never seen before by members of the public or the media, the cases of the majority of the prisoners held at Guantánamo – 758 out of 779 in total – are described in detail in memoranda from JTF-GTMO, the Joint Task Force at Guantánamo Bay, to US Southern Command In Miami, Florida”.

The public will have access to detailed information about the prisoners, 60% of whom were never real terrorists or threatened the U.S. security in any way, their names, aliases, date of birth, citizenship, and other relevant information.
