  1. 17-4. Levels of Visitation
    All detainees will have a level of ICRC contact designated for them. These different levels are as follows:
    a. No Access: No contact of any kind with the ICRC. This includes the delivery of ICRC mail.
    b. Restricted: ICRC is allowed to ask the detainee about health and welfare only. No prolonged questions.
    c. Unrestricted: ICRC is allowed full access to talk to the detainee.
    d. Visual: Access is restricted to visual inspection of the detainees physical condition. No form of communication is permitted. No delivery of ICRC mail.

  2. Morbid photo at wikileaks of detainees blindfolded, ear-muffed, gloved and hooded. More meat processing from the Full Metal Junket.

  3. Wikileaks is providing a valuable service by bringing these things to the public eye. The current United States administration seems to think it can do whatever it wants. The patriot act is inherently unconstitutional because it circumvents the judicial branch when deciding what action to take. What is the point of checks and balances if the president can push ahead laws that allow the checks and balances to not function?
