Judicial Watch has received information from the Spanish agency La Prensa that terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay can Skype with their families. This has resulted from a policy change from the Department of Defense, which it claims is “consistent with both humanitarian and security interest.” According to Judicial Watch, President Obama has relaxed policies at Gitmo since he came to office in 2009. For example, he permitted terrorist Moath al-Alwi to publish a sob letter about his treatment at Gitmo. Read more about this latest news from Gitmo from Judicial Watch here.

“That brilliant idea is part of a plan to reintroduce the prisoners into a modern society when the president fulfills his campaign promise of releasing them,” Judicial Watch said. “They have been taught to send electronic mail and have received language and basic user skills training to help them find jobs when the leave the military prison.”
