Joint Task Force Guantanamo, the U.S. armed forces operation responsible for the extrajudicial detention of hundreds of accused terrorists from around the world, has its very own magazine. And, like Elle, Dabiq, and Cosmo before it, I can’t stop reading The Wire.
At the Defense Media Activity, a little-known and oddly named office in Ft. Meade, Maryland, that provides “news and information to U.S. forces worldwide,” there are thousands of classified“educational” films about the American military—including a huge trove of secret home movies from Gitmo.
Thanks to a New York Times freedom of information request, we can now see (almost) all the names of the prisoners still held at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, a dozen years into the War On Terror. "Continued detention" is the future for most of them.
