Reviews Announced for Release of Gitmo Detainees

In a departure from current policy regarding the release of enemy combatants during a war, the Department of Defense announced today it is instituting review prodedures for Afghan combatants detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz ordered a review procedure which consists mainly of the following:

1) Each detainee may appear annually before a military tribunal to make a case for being released.

2) Each detainee may have an officer assigned to them to assist with their appeal to the tribunal.

3)The tribunal will accept documents from family, friends and the national government of the enemy combatant along with documents from US government agencies during the deliberations of the appeal for release.
