Sensitive But Unclassified Gov Docs Released by Sen. Levin

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 22, 2005

Press release yesterday: “Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., today released previously withheld portions of an FBI document critical of interrogation practices used by the Department of Defense (DOD) at Guantanamo Bay in 2002, disclosing information in that document previously withheld by the Department of Justice (DOJ). In a letter to DOJ on February 10, 2005, Levin and Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., had requested reconsideration of the decision to withhold portions of that FBI document and, in response, DOJ released a new version of the FBI document with the additional information.”
