More on Destruction of Interrogation Documents

I haven't copied the whole blog but you can click the title above and go to it. There are two interesting things that I didn't catch in the news accounts... one is that the Khadr team sent a letter to the Supremes asking them to consider the handbook with instructions to destroy notes in their up and coming decision (link to the letter near the bottom here) and second is an affidavit from counsel about the handbook if counsel can't get a copy of the handbook to the court. If you want to see the affidavit you will need to click on the title and read the post... the link to the affidavit is at or near the end.

New claim in detainee cases

Lawyers for a young Canadian being detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, moved on Monday to complain to the Supreme Court that military officials are encouraging interrogation teams to destroy notes about their activities, suggesting that this raises new issues about the adequacy of Pentagon procedures for deciding who is an enemy and must remain in captivity. A key issue now before the Court in the pending cases on detainees’ legal rights, the letter filed Monday said, is whether the prisoners will have a real opportunity to challenge the reasons for their confinement. That is threatened, it added, by the potential loss of interrogators’ documents. The letter, sent to the Court’s Clerk, can be downloaded here.
