Document warns Guantanamo employees not to talk

Military and civilian employees at the U.S. prison for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, were warned recently not to talk with attorneys who represent detainees held there, according to a document prepared by the legal office of the Army-led task force that runs the facility. The document, obtained by USA TODAY, says that soldiers and interrogators are not required to give defense attorneys statements about the “personal treatment of detainees” or any “failure to report actions of others.” It also says that refusing to cooperate with defense attorneys “will not impact your career.” The warning — titled “Interaction with Defense Counsel” — has surfaced at a time when the treatment of the nearly 600 detainees at Guantanamo is under scrutiny because of the abuse and sexual humiliation of Iraqis in U.S. custody at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, former commander at Guantanamo, went to Iraq last year to share interrogation techniques used in Cuba.Full Story
