The Guantanamo Papers
NPR News Investigations examines a massive trove of secret documents, which provide assessments of the 779 Guantanamo Bay detainees. The reports were leaked last year to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks and made available to The New York Times by another source on condition of anonymity and then shared with NPR.
April 24, 2011 Who are the Guantanamo detainees? Where did they come from? What risk did they pose and who may have returned to terrorism or insurgency?
April 25, 2011 Thousands of pages of secret military reports obtained by The New York Times and shared with NPR put a name, a history and a face on some of the hundreds of men held at the detention camp.
April 25, 2011 Hundreds of secret documents show that military and counterterrorism analysts sometimes found it difficult to determine whether those held in the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay were truly dangerous.
April 29, 2011 Hundreds of classified documents from the Joint Task Force at Guantanamo provide a look at how military officials determined whom they had in custody and whether they might have ties to terrorism. Interrogators were trained to look for subtle clues — among them, a Casio F-91W watch, said to be the favored timepiece of al-Qaida bomb-makers.
May 5, 2011 Documents from the Guantanamo detention camp show prisoners there and at secret CIA facilities were interrogated over and over about Osama bin Laden's courier network. About a third of the CIA detainees were subjected to what the agency euphemistically called enhanced interrogation techniques.
April 25, 2011 Secret documents reveal that interrogators at Guantanamo were ill prepared to gather reliable intelligence from prisoners at the camp. Some interrogators didn't have the language skills and would reward prisoners with McDonald's for being helpful.
April 26, 2011 Carol Rosenberg of the Miami Herald has been reporting about the detention center for years. The previously secret documents, she says, tell us a lot about the ways U.S. personnel tried to determine which detainees were and were not dangerous.
