Gen. Dempsey's daytrip at Guantánamo

  • The Army officer in charge of the Camp 6 prison, a lieutenant whose identity was not disclosed by the Pentagon, accompanies the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, inside a show cell at the $39 million, 200-cell prison building while Rear Adm. Richard Butler, the commander of detention center operations, stands outside. Behind the two soldiers are what appear to be a pillow, mattress and green suicide smock issued to prisoners in place of a uniform, if the military suspects he might use his clothing to do self-harm.
