Redaction Fail: Where is Hassan Ghul? « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
Dafna Linzer at ProPublica has a fantastic find from her close reading of the CIA memos. What appears to be an inadvertent lack of redaction hints that CIA held a detainee called Hassan Ghul in one of its black site secret prisons. He wasn’t sent to Guantanamo Bay along with the 14 other black site detainees in 2006.
Since then, he has been considered a missing, or ghost detainee. But in the heavily redacted OLC memodated May 30, 2005, government censors appeared to have missed a single reference to his name and confinement during a lengthy description of the interrogation techniques used against him. The reference can be found at the bottom of Page 7 in the memo, where Ghul’s surname is spelled “Gul.” …
So it appears we now have evidence Ghul was in a CIA prison. Where he is today is still a mystery.
