New military report on Gitmo detainees cited to support interrogation policies

[JURIST] US military officials are citing a recent overview of information obtained from Guantanamo detainees as evidence that the military should be able to conduct operations at Camp Delta without intervention from the US court system. The unclassified document [PDF], quietly released online last month, highlights the results from some 4,000 interrogation reports and the information obtained therein, including reports of al Qaeda's terror operations, training, and tactics employed in attempts to attack the US. Administration officials contend that it is more important to continue the interrogations in order to attempt future terror attacks than to grant constitutional safeguards to non-US citizen enemy combatants. The Los Angeles Times has more.
