Faced with the worst-ever foreign attack on American soil, the U.S. military set up a human intelligence laboratory at Guant namo that used interrogation and detention practices they largely made up as they went along.
On Sunday night, a number of news outlets and WikiLeaks published a trove of classified documents  on detainees at Guantanamo Bay. ProPublica has been reporting on Gitmo  and the issues surrounding indefinite detention for more than two years. In October 2010, Dafna Linzer revealed how the Obama administration censored one federal judge's Gitmo decision  that had questioned the government's evidence against a detainee.
After months of pressure, the Obama administration has finally transferred Pfc. Bradley Manning to a military prison appropriately designed for pre-trial detention in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.
