Media Publicizing Military Secrets...Again


AP...(go figure) excerpts below...

While our troops have boots on the ground routing out the enemy in every conceived spider hole across the battlefields the globe over, we have the anti-victory crowds with their boots on the ground ensuring that our enemy knows our every move.

Today, the enemy within discloses a military secret that the military has been keeping secret hoping that there are no more terrorist attacks. The only good thing is that the New York Slimes was scooped on the story by the AP stringers of Al Qaeda.
GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba - Somewhere amid the cactus-studded hills on this sprawling Navy base, separate from the cells where hundreds of men suspected of links to al-Qaida and the Taliban have been locked up for years, is a place even more closely guarded - a jailhouse so protected that its very location is top secret.

For the first time, the top commander of detention operations at Guantanamo has confirmed the existence of the mysterious Camp 7. In an interview with The Associated Press, Rear Adm. Mark Buzby also provided a few details about the maximum-security lockup.

Guantanamo commanders said Camp 7 is for key alleged al-Qaida members, who must be kept apart from other prisoners to prevent them from retaliating against long-term detainees who have talked to interrogators. They also want the location kept secret for fear of terrorist attack. [...]
I have a question, then. Why are we confirming to the enemy via a news reporter that we have a secret place for the worse of the worse? So much for keeping it a secret. What is the next step? Will we provide GPS coordinates so tghe enemy can look it up on the Google Earth Search? Someone needs to be slapped around a bit for this.
[...] Many operations have been classified since the detention center opened in January 2002 in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. More than four years passed before the military released even the names of detainees held on this 45-square-mile base in southeast Cuba - and it did so only after the AP filed a Freedom of Information Act request.

Detainees have been held in Camp Echo and Camps 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Journalists cleared by the military have been allowed to tour some of these lockups, where 260 men are held, but aren't allowed to speak to detainees. Some lawmakers and other VIPs have passed through, and the International Red Cross has access, but doesn't divulge details of visits with prisoners. [...]
Since when are military secrets subject to Freedom of Information Act requests? Even our politicians know better than to disclose...or do they? But, the AP seems to be more than willing, all in the name of The Scoop. Dip dunks.
[...] Camp 7, where 15 "high-value detainees" are held, is so secret that its very existence was not publicly known until it was mentioned in December by attorneys for Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident who allegedly plotted to bomb gas stations in the United States. Previously, many observers believed the 15 were being held in Camps 5 or 6, which are maximum-security facilities.

"Under the gag order ... we are prohibited from saying anything more about their camp," lawyer Gitanjali Gutierrez, who met with Khan in October, said Tuesday. Most of the lawyers' notes and memos have been stamped "top secret" by the government.

Buzby told the AP he is sharply limiting to a "very few" the number of people who know Camp 7's whereabouts. [...]
How about if Buzby keeps his yapper shut? Now that Buzby has let the cat out of the bag to a news agency, that "very few" that know are now the entire globe.

Gutierrez is a seedy character seeing that he likes to work for terrorists and associates himself with anti-Americanists. Doing a search on this cretin, a wealth of data is found. The poor fool thinks we should grant constitutional rights to terrorists in Club Gitmo.

As a side note, Amanda from Think In Reverse is salivating and getting the panties all wadded up. What else should we expect from anti-Americanists?
