(WASHINGTON) — WikiLeaks’ latest document dump has again infuriated the Obama administration and will likely raise the ire of former President Bush and his one-time senior advisers.
The website has passed along materials to The New York Times, Washington Post and National Public Radio that concerns formerly classified information about current and past detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as well as new details about how al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden and second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri escaped from coalition forces in Afghanistan in late 2001 and have managed to keep the terrorist operation going.
Among the 700 internal U.S. military documents about the Gitmo detainees are details about schemes designed by admitted 9/11 plotter Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, along with intelligence gathered by interrogators from their interviews with other detainees.
The New York Times says the documents reveal that most of the remaining detainees of the 600 that have been released over the past eight years are considered “high risk” to American interests if they were freed. There’s also a speculation that 200 of the detainees previously released, most under the watch of the Bush White House, were deemed “high risk.”
