Department of Defense Releases Guantanamo Review

As you probably recall, President Obama's first executive order, made on January 22, 2009, was "Review and Disposition of Individuals Detained at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base Closure of Detention Facilities." The U.S. Department of Defense's report, Review of Department Compliance with President’s Executive Order on Detainee Conditions of Confinement, is now available on its website.

According to an article in this week's New York Times, some lawyers and human rights groups are critical of the review. For resources on different sides of the issues, see our guides to Crime & Justice and Human Rights.
