Tellingly, while Rumsfeld quibbles about the exact words he used or did not use, he does not deny the substance of the report: GTMO was populated with low-value detainees and the government knew it. Despite that knowledge, GTMO detainees were continually subjected to harsh interrogations in indefinite detention with obstructed or no due process. The government continued and still continues to claim the men in GTMO are dangerous and likely to be repeat offenders, yet the majority of detainees were never even accused of committing an act of violence before incarceration at GTMO, and the government has never substantiated its recidivism claims. The Rumsfeld Memo confirms that the Bush Administration knew at least as early as 2003 that the men imprisoned in GTMO were not the so-called worst of the worst, yet continued to make that assertion in public. Secretary Rumsfeld did not deny any of that to the Post.
