If you need help using Tor you can contact WikiLeaks for assistance in setting it up using our simple gktmo available at: If you can use Tor, but need to contact WikiLeaks for other reasons use our secured webchat available at http: Tor is an encrypted anonymising network that makes it harder to intercept internet communications, or see where communications are coming from or going gitko.
If you are at high risk and you have the capacity to do so, you can also access the submission system through a secure operating system called Tails. Tails is an operating system launched from a USB stick or a DVD that aim to leaves no traces when the computer is shut down after use and automatically routes your internet traffic through Tor. Our submission system works hard to preserve your anonymity, but we recommend you gitmk take some of your own precautions. Please review these basic guidelines.
If you have a very large submission, or a submission with a complex format, or are a high-risk source, please contact us. In our experience it is always possible to find a custom solution for even the most seemingly gitno situations. If the computer you are uploading from could subsequently be audited in an investigation, consider using a computer that is not easily tied to you.
Technical users can also use Tails to help ensure you do not leave any records of your submission on the computer. If you gitmi any issues talk to WikiLeaks. We are the global experts in source protection — it is a complex field.
Even those who mean well gktmo do not have the experience or expertise to advise properly.
This includes other media organisations. If you are a high-risk source, avoid saying anything or doing anything after submitting which might promote suspicion. In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour. If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used.
In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives retain data even after a secure erasure. If you used flash media to store sensitive data, it is important to destroy the media. If you do this and are a high-risk source you should make sure there are no traces of the clean-up, since such traces themselves may gktmo suspicion.
If a legal action is brought against you as a result of your submission, there are organisations that may help you.

Tuesday December 3, The transparency group’s disclosure follows its widely reported release of the SOP manual only a few weeks ago.
Wikileaks has also released another related sensitive US military manual entitled ” Detainee Operations in a Joint Environment “, which is a defense-wide instruction manual for detainee operations including rendition flights, which has yet to be analyzed gtmo Wikileaks invites journalists and the public to persue it.
Among the key details found so far are:. Systematic denial of Red Cross access to prisoners ssop.
The use of dogs remains. Segregation and isolation are still used routinely and systematically — including an initial period of at least 4 weeks “to enhance and exploit the disorientation and disorganization felt by a newly arrived detainee”, only terminated at the behest of interrogators.
Both manuals assert that detainees will skp treated in accordance with the “spirit” of the Geneva conventions “to the degree consistent with military needs”, but never assert that the conventions are actually being followed at Guantanamo.
Put into practice, neither manual complies with the Geneva conventions. No dictionaries or periodicals and no books about English or geography; guards are not permitted to discuss “current” affairs, even including the then year old space shuttle disaster; and no looking at ‘distinguished visitors’ — down to precise procedures for bodily averting detainee gaze.
Despite criticism from the Red Cross, the manual uses even more hostile and suspicious language towards the international humanitarian body — and is still barred from access to some detainees. Further, probably in response to the actions of James Yee, the prison chaplain who spoke out about conditions at Guantanamo Bay, new rules prevent the chaplain performing many duties without official authorization or accompaniment. Many rule changes have little other explanation than as response to particular abuses, raising questions for the Pentagon.
Did guards use Capsicum Spray on detainees merely for throwing water? Did guards eat portions of detainee meals? Were haircuts used as punishment? The extent and detail of these changes reveals the extent of problems zop detainees — and also, the extent to which the military went to cover them up.
Pervasive spin via language control ‘hunger strike’ becomes VTF – ‘voluntary total fasting’. Much of the manual is unchanged. Military dogs are still used prevalently. New detainees are still placed in isolation for 4 weeks.
Styrofoam cups zop still confiscated if written on. Thanks to Jen Nessel from the Center for Constitutional Rights for additional co-ordination and Christopher Findlay for additional research, but most of girmo we would like to acknowledge our source, Sol. The rules set out a doctrine of rewards and punishments. They ban, among other things, “organized physical fitness”.
The general tone is given by the concluding line: In US Personnel standards of conductlist of contraband items for personnel i. Whistles, if clipped on a guard pocket, must now be clipped to the left pocket. New sections – Before leaving, detainees are given items including prayer beads, prayer cap, Koran, book, bag, jeans, klenex, wet wipes, comb. In addition two PSYOP psychological operations messages are to be broadcast about the detainee and a feast prepared for departing detainees in camp 4.
Some change to section Behavior management plan. For phase 1 first 2 weeksstill no ICRC or chaplain contact, no books or mail, one styorofoam cup, one bar of soap, etc. Now they get Koran, but still no prayer beads or prayer cap. After phase 2 second 2-week periodthe interrogator will give them prayer beads and prayer cap.
