    The reports are about past events unrelated to the Obama administration. That is why the ACLU report is accurate.


    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said that since August 2009 US authorities have been notifying it of names of detained people in a separate structure at Bagram.

    "The ICRC is being notified by the US authorities of detained people within 14 days of their arrest," a Red Cross spokesman said.

    "This has been routine practice since August 2009 and is a development welcomed by the ICRC."

    "We are being notified about persons at the Bagram Theatre Internment Facility [now Detention Facility in Parwan] since Feb 2008," the ICRC spokesman added.
