Lt. Justin Henderson, one of Matthew Diaz’s detailed counsel, writes that Diaz grew up in Indiana, not Kansas. He also notes that the focus of the prosecution’s claims about Diaz’s violation of secrecy classifications goes to “the detainees’ Source ID codes, their full Internment Serial Numbers, their GTMO IDs, their MP IDs, and their Interrogation Team codes,” all of which, it is claimed, were found in codes contained on the sheet that he transmitted and which were not disclosed when the Department of Defense finally complied with Judge Rakoff’s disclosure order. This is a fair point.
It is also fair to note that, had the Department of Defense done what it was lawfully required to do in the first place, both in treating the detainees in the way the law required, permitting access to counsel, and allowing publication of their names and countries of origin, the incident never would have occurred.
