Nearly 700 classified military documents are part of the latest trove released by WikiLeaks, detailed in a new story by The New York Times. The leaked documents tell new stories of still-detained and already released Guantanamo Bay detainees, providing details of life at the prison. One detail reveals a former prisoner held for several years who now is a rebel fighter in Libya; lists of the "pocket litter" items taken from prisoners pockets when they were captured. Andy Lehren helped break the story for The New York Times and explains what was in the documents.

Anyone who followed history and the Russian problems would know the locals had expertise in major tunnel building. Shame on those who ignored history.
