The Guantánamo Docket

ProPublica points out (Gitmo Database Details 779 Prisoners’ Cases, by Eric Umansky, ProPublica, January 15, 2009) that the New York Times has an interesting resource:

One of the handiest—and least-noticed—places for finding that information is the New York Times’ Guantanamo Bay Docket.

Launched quietly on November 3, the searchable database has government documents on all of the prisoners the Pentagon has acknowledged have been held at Gitmo. 779 have been detained there since 2002; 248 remain there today.
