Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Miami Herald's Carol Rosenberg, the U.S. Department of Justice today released—with certain classified omissions—a list of its Guantanamo Bay detainees and their formerly shrouded detention statuses. The Herald reports that included on the list are 48 so-called "indefinite detainees," Guantanamo captives who remain imprisoned but ineligible for trial or transfer "pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (2001)."
Some Gitmo prisoners, including some indefinite detainees, are now in their third month of hunger striking to protest their captivity. As of Friday the strike had grown to include 104 of the jail's 166 prisoners, according to the Associated Press.
Update: This post has been updated to note that Carol Rosenberg, not Charlie Savage, filed the FOIA lawsuit that got these records released.
