This report responds to tasking from the President and the Secretary of Defense and examines the present conditions of detention at Guantánamo, relying most principally upon the provisions of Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions to determine whether the conditions of confinement conform to the requirements outlined in the Executive Order. While we conclude that conditions at Guantánamo are in conformity with Common Article 3, from our review, it was apparent that the chain of command responsible for the detention mission at Guantánamo consistently seeks to go beyond a minimalist approach to compliance with Common Article 3, and endeavors to enhance conditions in a manner as humane as possible consistent with security concerns. In this regard, in this report our team has identified a number of items which we recommend the Department of Defense continue to pursue consistent with that humane approach described above, or in several cases, items that we recommend for JTF-Guantánamo that are not now in place. In this report, we do not intend to suggest that these recommendations are items that the Department must pursue to satisfy Common Article 3. Rather, they are items that we view as consistent with the approach of the Chain of Command to continually enhance conditions of detainment.
