URGENT: WikiLeaks Publishes Pentagon "Detainee Policies"

In a statement released to the press, Wikileaks has announced a new plan to publish over 100 classified documents relating to standard operating procedures (SOP) established by the Department of Defense pertaining to the treatment of detainees at military prisons. The New York Daily News reports that in the statement accompanying the latest document dump, “WikiLeaks criticized regulations it said had led to abuse and impunity.”

Wikileaks is calling the cache the “Detainee Policies,” and in the press release they claim the purpose of the publication of the documents is to aid human rights investigators in researching “policies of accountability” as set forth in the Defense Department directives included in the release.

The statement, attributed to Wikileaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange, reads: “The 'Detainee Policies' show the anatomy of the beast that is post-9/11 detention, the carving out of a dark space where law and rights do not apply, where persons can be detained without a trace at the convenience of the U.S. Department of Defense.” And: “It shows the excesses of the early days of war against an unknown 'enemy' and how these policies matured and evolved” resulting in "the permanent state of exception that the United States now finds itself in, a decade later."

The documents will be released over the course of a month and will focus primarily on rules governing three prisons maintained by the U.S. armed forces: Camp Bucca (near Umm Qasar, Iraq), Abu Ghraib (also in Iraq), and Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

Thanks for the heads up

We'll have to look forward to those. But why announce them now instead of just spring them up when they become available? Why show your hand?

Same as

all these banking details that where going to cripple the global bastards. They where supposed to come out within a few months, years ago.

Im finding it hard to trust Wikileaks as they mention nothing of Ron Paul or Central Banking. It all seems a little contrived to me.

I guess you missed the internal war in WikiLeaks

former partner/member/employee or whatever left the organization and took that data with him. Now you might ask why HE didn't release it. Fear I expect. fear of retaliation from the TPTB. But that is just my opinion.

Interesting

I did not know this, can I do some more reading somewhere?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Romney folk

Down-vote my Ron Paul posts and this post is a prime example!!

Michael Nystrom you are the guy you are my friend for many years how how you allow for this shit to happen to me.

Can you explain?

Frankly I don't see you Michael as a friend anymore.

Now I am convinced

You are one manipulative whiner.

"I don't see you Michael as a friend anymore"

You insist that you insulted no one while calling countless people "Romney guys" and traitors and alike, for campaigning ron paul!

You may act nice and friend, but when they won't cover for what you caused on yourself, you try to hurt them and say that you don't think of them as a friend anymore.

You need to stop this nonsense, or are you a paid LP troll?

I don't know what you are complaining about. Your post about wikileaks is good.

Now even when you aren't spamming, some people downvote you automatically, unfortunately.

Like Michael said: "Some people have brought this upon themselves."

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

Good, then leave already. No sense hanging around if you don't like the boss here.

I don't play, I commission the league.

Easy bud

I've been defending you - don't make me stop.

Michael can do whatever he wants with his website. Although I disagree with allowing it to be over-run by trolls, I'm not going to take it personal.

IN FACT: An honorable man would accept his mistake and apologize. I hope you do.

That's

a pretty crappy thing to say to someone who has bent over backwards giving you 2nd chances. I think this answers a question that was just asked of me.

Why do you come in between

What is your game?

I speak my heart to MN not to you.

4 years ago you almost placed Michael in prison by placing a post on his website that I had to as a moderator to remove post called sniper tactics.

Call for siping killing people would have shut down the site and placed MN in prison -- not you as an FBI guy as always you creeps walk away free just as in the Browns case who were tricked by traitors like you!

You are just too clever for us, so I guess I might as well confess my identity as well.

He checks my posts every day all comments and all acticles and placed all in a file on his computer.
Just as DP member Thomas used to do before he was banned.

I admit

that I have little computer savvy! That being said, just how do you know, LL, that Jefferson checks your posts each day and places them in a file on his computer? Likewise, how did you know that Thomas, now banned, did the same thing?? I guess I'm asking how one can determine that information.

he mentions things as he goes along

For example as soon the very day I post a photo on my Daily Paul activity page he right away that same day asks me (why so and so...)

He actually told me that he keeps files on me via email.
He told me he reads all I post and he keeps all records of things that he can use against me.

Many times he send emails to MN and to me apologizing.
I have them.

He apologized many times for personal attacks against me and yet he continues them.

And Michael Nystrom is silent. (this time around)

Thank you

for answering me. As far as Michael goes, LL:

You do realize he's 'in the middle' of one huge storm, right? This may prevent him from fully monitoring this site!

We're all adults here. Toughen up. Imo, no one here needs 'their hand held'. Differing opinions here, trolls, etc... Why do you believe that you cannot handle this on your own? Perhaps you may want to give that some thought.

So he keeps

A collection of your posts, that YOU posted, on a Public Site? And there is a problem with that, why?

Are you saying that you should not have to be held accountable to your previous comments?

I really am struggling to understand what you are trying to do here? You do realise you are not helping your cause?

wtf?

I must have missed something. Half these comments don't make sense

Dont worry

Its a tiff between LL and Jefferson, LL seems to have a problem with Jefferson making him accountable for previous posts. he also seems to beleive anyone NOT voting for GJ, is working for the FBI/CIA, or they are Romney supporter's.

Anyway, Back to Liberty . . . Lets end the Federal Reserve and free ourselves from centralised control!
