Today is Memorial Day 2023, and the following discussion is most appropriate to commemorate the fallen who fought for America. I am also going to include in the commemoration, those who became the unwitting victims of “Collateral Damage” in our war on terror. In this case, the victims of September 11, 2001.
The following report was released by USA Today on May 24, 2023. I will be reading it aloud on the attached video included with some of my own commentary you may find of interest.
As a side note before listening to the read, I reached out for a response on this USA Today report, and was told the following statement by a government official with knowledge of the military commissions. He states…
“Most of the article is accurate; however, the following statement from the article is false: ‘The declaration, which was completed in July 2021, was not classified. Instead, it was posted with other legal documents on the Office of Military Commissions website.’
Canestraro’s statement is redacted on the OMC website.” ~~~ End Quote.
In other words if it was redacted, it was classified. So then just to clarify, I further asked if it was redacted before the initial report was released. The answer was, “Statement Redacted before”.
You can read the USA Today report here, or listen to my read which will be added to this
