Summary:

The Associated Press won a lawsuit against the Department of Defense, forcing it to release under FOIA documents that exposed the tensions and chaos that permeated the prison camp for suspected terrorists in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. Prisoners banged on their cells to protest the heat and hurled whatever liquid they had at the guards who sometimes retaliated with pepper spray or punches, the documents reveal.
