What I find most interesting in this AP story about the pentagon official who attacked the lawyers defending Guantanamo detainees is that the story actually quotes the guy and then after the quote gives conflicting evidence as factual (not as he-said, she-said)!

Stimson also described Guantanamo as "certainly, probably the most transparent and open location in the world" because of visits from more than 2,000 journalists since it opened five years ago. However, journalists are not allowed to talk to detainees on those visits, their photos are censored and their access to the base has at times been shutoff entirely.

PS: Yep, it's the five year anniversary. Sigh.
