Another Sensitive Gitmo Manual Leaked Online

Wired (h/t Rachel P.)

Wikileaks has published a second leaked Standard Operating Procedures manual 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 that Wikileaks published last month, 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.

Wikileaks also published a second document this week that details instructions for dealing with rendition flights involving the air transport of detainees. The document includes a diagram [pictured above] of an airplane used for renditions. The document is fairly large and Wikileaks hasn't had time to analyze it. Therefore the organization is asking readers to help them review it and post interesting findings.
