City:

Washington, DC

Summary:

Foreign visitors (intelligence and law enforcement teams) from the thirty-plus countries with citizens at Guantanamo were informed, via cables from the State Department, that video and sound from their interrogation sessions would be recorded. This contradicts long-standing DoD claims that it did not regularly videotape such interrogations; the Bush Administration has denied requests for any such videotapes, and has not indicated that such tapes even exist.

Notes:

The Washington Post used FOIA to obtain cables from the State Department to foreign government delegations regarding their visits to citizens of their countries held at Guantanamo Bay.
