Smuggled in: A copy of Inspire, which has contained tips to would-be militants about how to kill U.S. citizens, was found in Guantanamo Bay
January 19, 2012
The discovery of material sparked an inspection of cells and a contentious new policy requiring special review teams to examine mail between prisoners and attorneys, U.S. prosecutors said today.
Navy Cmdr. Andrea Lockhart told a military judge during a pre-trial hearing that a copy of Inspire magazine got into a cell.
She provided no details on who received the magazine or how. But she said the breach showed that prior rules at the base governing mail review were not adequate.
Yemen’s al-Qaida of the Arabian Peninsula launched the online, English-language magazine in 2010. An early issue contained tips to would-be militants about how to kill U.S. citizens.
