Wikileaks puts another Gitmo document online

A couple of weeks ago, we posted about Wikileaks releasing a sensitive Guantanamo Standard Operating Procedures manual. They’ve just posted a second leaked manual — Detainee Operations in a Joint Environment (available for download below) — that provides detailed instructions about how guards at Guantanamo’s Camp Delta were instructed to treat detainees at the military prison in 2004. Like the 2003 Gitmo manual, this document is unclassified but still contains significant information about the isolation of prisoners, the use of dogs at Guantanamo, and forms of punishment for detainees. Wikileaks editor Julian Assange has put together a handy side-by-side comparison showing changes between the 2003 and 2004 documents.
