McClatchy Investigates U.S. Detention System
Reporters for the Washington bureau of McClatchy Newspapers have unveiled the results of an eight-month investigation of the U.S. detention system created after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. They report that the government imprisoned dozens of innocent men, subjected them to abuse and stripped them of their legal rights.
The news service interviewed 66 detainees rreleased from the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as well as more than a dozen local officials -- primarily in Afghanistan -- and U.S. officials with intimate knowledge of the detention program. Their investigation also reviewed thousands of pages of U.S. military tribunal documents and other records.
