Transparency @ Guantánamo

Gen. John F. Kelly, USMC
Charlie Savage of The New York Times reports here that Gen. John F. Kelly of the U.S. Marine Corps has issued a new rule that limits reporters wishing to visit Guantánamo Bay to four "media days" per year. The story notes that "General Kelly previously decided in September 2013 to stop telling reporters how many detainees were participating in a hunger strike each day." A number of news outlets have asked that the new rule be reconsidered.
