Athens Olympics Attack Foiled By: ChannelNewsAsia.com
ChannelAsiaNews.com | Friday, July 16, 2004

Guantanamo Bay detainees have given up intelligence that helped foil attacks planned for the upcoming Athens Olympics and possibly a dozen attacks elsewhere, a US daily said.

The information was gathered recently from prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to the Chicago Tribune newspaper, one of several US media outlets given access to the US navy base there last week.

The daily did not elaborate on US military claims during an on-site "intelligence briefing," but noted that they were impossible to verify independently.

The Tribune reporter, along with a television reporter from CNN (Cable News Network) was given special access to Camp Delta, where about 600 "enemy combatants" have been held without access to legal representation for months, and in some cases, years.

The report comes as the government prepares to allow some of those detainees to challenge their detention in US courts, following a Supreme Court ruling in their favor last month.

Detainees' lawyers contend the government is inflating the value of the intelligence garnered from individuals at Guantanamo in order to buttress their case for denying the detainees due process in US courts.

But military officials told the Tribune that intelligence they have gathered has yielded information about US terror cells within US borders and internationally, as well as the planning and financing of attacks on September 11, 2001.
