Letters Regarding Preservation of Guantanamo Records

Coalition partners and others sent letters to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Archivist of the United States Allen Weinstein on April 26, regarding an order that purports to transform the requirement that a complete set of the documents and records be maintained into an option. These letters request that the Attorney General and Archivist confirm that a complete set of the records will be maintained under the ordinary federal records laws and urges, in addition, that such records be preserved as permanent historical records.
