A newly declassified document, obtained via the Freedom of Information Act, confirms that weeks after Camp X-Ray at Guantanamo started to receive detainees, Department of Defense officials expected some of these prisoners to die. Camp authorities were also informed that burial at the U.S.-run naval base in Cuba was “authorized for detainees.”
