The ACLU has been chasing its tail trying to get government information about the Bagram detention facility in Afghanistan.

“There are serious concerns that Bagram is another Guantánamo – except with many more prisoners, less due process, no access to lawyers or courts and reportedly worse conditions,” said Melissa Goodman, staff attorney with the ACLU National Security Project.

The Department of Defense and the CIA, not surprisingly, have been stonewalling and released no information in response to several FOIA requests.

This would seem to conflict with President Transparency’s position, but I had another thought. Has the President agreed to close Gitmo … simply because Gitmo II is already in place?
