The June 29 decision directly affects only 14 detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Ten of them were already facing commissions on charges of violating the laws of war. Charges had been prepared for another four detainees, but they had not yet been arraigned, a defense official said. However, officials said today the decision could ultimately affect 40 to 80 detainees who are expected to be charged in the future. Nothing in the decision takes issue with the detention of some 450 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, officials emphasized. “The court recognizes that this is a unique conflict against a unique enemy and in fact a dangerous one,” an official said. “The court was not questioning” the right to detain these enemy combatants during hostilities, he said. White House Press Secretary Tony Snow issued a similar sentiment during today’s White House briefing. “Nobody gets a ‘get out of jail free card,’” he said of the decision. Snow acknowledged that the war on terror poses new considerations. “This is a different kind of war and I think it creates a different kind of legal atmosphere,” he said. Today’s decision was based on the case Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, filed on behalf ofOfficials study implications of Supreme Court ruling on military tribunals in GTMOBy Donna Miles, American Forces Press Service Photo provided by www.supremecourtus.govThe June 29 decision affects only 14 detainees at Guantanamo Bay directly. Ten of them were already facing commissions on charges of violating the laws of war. Charges had been prepared for another four detainees, but they had not yet been arraigned, a defense official said.The Supreme Courts decision on June 29 specifically invites the administration to work with Congress to change the law so it can try some detainees through military tribunals, said senior officials from the Departments of Justice and Defense. The Supreme Court ruled 53 last week that military commissions for detainees charged with war crimes would violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice as well as four Geneva Conventions. While ruling against military tribunals for detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as they currently stand, the court’s decision notes that “nothing prevents the administration from going to Congress to seek the authorities it feels are necessary,” an official told reporters via teleconference. In fact, Justice Stephen Breyer offered “an implicit invitation” encouraging the administration to do so, he noted. President Bush said he would explore this option in hopes of determining a way forward. Defense and Justice officials called the Supreme Salim Ahmed Hamdan. A former driver and bodyguard for al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Hamdan was picked up in Afghanistan in late 2001 and turned over to U.S. officials. He has been detained at Guantanamo Bay since 2002. Hamdan challenged the legality of the U.S. government trying him for alleged war crimes before a military commission under a presidential order. Hamdan argued that he was entitled to a court-martial convened under the U.S. Code of Military Justice or a civilian trial before a federal judge. “Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.”


3 Friday, July 7, 2006By MC1 Robert Lamb, Public Affairs OfficeLocal artwork displayed at the BayviewChristine Kaiser's photo titled “Iggie the Iguana meets Andy Warhol" was a big hit with visitors at the Bayview Club.Photo by Christine Kaiser Artwork by Christine Kaiser and other local artists lined the walls of the Bayview Club, June 28 July 5. Kaiser displayed photos of Guantanamo Bay that she has taken since arriving in March of 2004. "It wasn't my best work, but I thought that the people coming to the show would like to see my photos of GTMO," said Kaiser. Modesty aside, she captured many objects and scenes that residents see everyday, but maybe not to the extent that her camera sees. The colors jump out. The action is frozen in time for the viewer to enjoy. Confucius once said, "Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” “I think that people really enjoyed seeing photos of things on GTMO that people don’t normally see, like the old JTF headquarters flag, the cannon, the cemetery, and even the flowers around the base," said Kaiser. "You may walk right by them everyday, but most people don’t take the time to recognize the little things that are beautiful in the world around us, as we rush off to do our jobs." Kaiser worked as a police and fire telecommunicator for more than 17 years, until 2003, when she was mobilized with the U.S. Army and stationed in England. She traveled extensively throughout Europe, shooting pictures of castles, churches and gargoyles. She currently works as an analyst for Joint Task Force Guantanamo. A native of Chicago, Kaiser's first published photo was a professional beach volleyball tournament in Chicago, during the summer of 1987. Most recently she had some of her work published in the September 2005 edition of Super Streetbike magazine. "With a small fee to MWR, we can sell our artwork to customers," said Kaiser. "I've gotten a lot of potential customers because of this art show. It was a big crowd, bigger than last year." One piece that drew a lot of attention at the Independence Day Art Show was her 'Psychedelic Iguana.' "The crowd really seemed to enjoy that one," she said. “It's called "Iggie the Iguana meets Andy Warhol," which I threw into the collection as a kind of joke... I love colors, and everyone likes the Iguanas down here... so I jazzed him up a bit!” Computer training — Maj.

4 Friday, July 7, 2006 Tess brings 'Funny Honniez 4 the Boyz'Story and photos by MC1 Igo Wordu, Public Affairs officeComedian Tess Drake headlined the MWRsponsored four-day comedy tour titled '4 the Boyz' which began July 2 at the Windjammer Ballroom. Retha Jones formerly pursued a career in acting, She was in Shelby Garret's "Beauty Shop." She also performs on BET's Comic View. Cynthia Levin has 17 years stand-up comedy experience. She's also appeared on BET's Comic View and with Colin Quinn on Comedy Central. Shayma Tash has made appearances on the "Tonight Show," "Best Damn Sports Show Period," and Ashton Kutcher's MTV "Punk'd." Kira Soltanovich moved to San Francisco from Ukraine when she was 4. She has been featured on the TV show "Bad girls Behaving Badly."Barely two months since her last visit to Guantanamo Bay, Tess Drake returned with her ‘Funny Honniez’ for a four-day comedy tour headlined “4 the Boyz.” Comedians Retha Jones, Shyma Tash, Kira Soltanovich, and Cynthia Levin accompanied Tess on the MWR-sponsored visit, which began July 2 at the Windjammer Ballroom. “I loved her performance the last time she came here, so I thought it would be a good idea to bring her back for the Independence Day festivities,” said Todd Jordan, MWR event organizer. “When I asked Tess to come down here for another tour, she was definitely on board with the idea. In fact, it was her idea to add more comedians.” “I enjoyed myself the last time I was here, and the people here appreciated my comedy so I had to come back, this time with something better,” said Tess. “I invited some of the most hilarious female comedians with me to add fun and variety to the tour. The people here are doing a great service to our nation and they deserve quality entertainment.” An hour before the comedy show began, the ballroom was packed with fans with few seats left vacant. JagStar, the rock band based in Nashville, Tenn. opened for the comedy show. The Meridian Miss. native and her comic friends wasted no time before making the crowd roar with laughter with their sublime and sometimes edgy punch lines. The Cuban iguana and the male-female ratio in GTMO, were just a few of their targets. “Comedy can be inspired by anything,” said Soltanocivh. “Jokes can be ordinary things you observe everyday. You have to see the humor in things that happen to you, whether good or bad. It makes life a little easier to deal with.” Tess echoed this sentiment. “Comedy for me was an accident, she said. “ I use to write down jokes from things that I observed or conversations that I had with people everyday. So when my marriage, which lasted for 90 days, was over, I turned to those jokes, and then I realized that I was funny. That is how I decided to become a comedian.” The comedians expressed their gratitude for the servicemembers and their families for what they do for our nation. “It is definitely an honor to be a part of this tour,” said Jones. “I didn’t know anyway else to show my appreciation for the people down here, besides taking part in this tour. Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect when Tess invited me, but coming here and seeing how lively the audiences are, it’s truly rewarding. I have had more fun here than I anticipated.” Levin said she cherished her trip to GTMO because it changes her perception of the base. “It’s one thing seeing this base from the media perspective, and its another being here in person. The lifestyle here is wonderful. GTMO has a lot to offer. The iguanas haven’t shown any interest in me. I’m still waiting to hook-up with one of them,” she joked. Tash was one of the crowd’s favorite. She did impersonations of Al Pacino’s character, Toni Montana, in the movie ‘Scarface,’ as well as Julia Roberts and Joan Rivers. “She was pretty funny,” said Andrey Simmons. “I loved the impersonation she did.” All five comedians have performed in numerous shows on military bases around the world.Continued on page 8

Instead of the traditional gathering of objects, scavenger hunt participants were required to photograph the answers to their clues with team members present in the photos.Photo by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon Scavenger hunt participants searched frantically for the last item left on their list, but where in the world is 'something blue where blue is hard to find?' Base residents and military personnel put their sleuthing skills to the test during the MWR Scavenger Hunt held July 4. Armed with I-Zone Polaroid cameras, whatever transportation was available, and their individual creativity, eight teams raced to complete a list of clues that led to different locations around base. The hunt began at the Deer Point Liberty Center. The teams departed around 11 a.m., and had to have their clue lists turned in by 4 p.m., or they were eliminated from the hunt. The clue lists took teams to locations such as Chapel Hill for answers to clues such as 'Known as the Cougars' (the Columbia College mascot) and the batting cages where “no man has pitched before.” Teams were required to photograph the location (the answer to clue) with at least two team members present in the photo. Teams received points for correct answers, and for creativity as well. When the Seabee team was challenged with the clue, “Something blue where blue is hard to find,” they answered with a photo of Tierra Kay housing, since Marine and Army personnel reside there instead of Sailors (blue is hard to find). The team won a point for creativity even though they missed the correct answer — Glass Beach. The teams also battled heat, time and occasional technical malfunctions. “We had a disadvantage because our camera didn’t work for the first couple of clues,” said SW3 Jason Bowles, member of the Seabee team, “so, we had to back-track and rephotograph those clues.” The Seabee team wasn’t the only team that faced challenges. “We had a team called the 'Daring Bikers',” said Julie Kegler, MWR Liberty Coordinator. “They started out with four bikes (borrowed from MWR), got some flat tires early on in the hunt, and had to come back several times to get more film, cameras, and new bikes. But they had nothing but a good attitude about it, and never gave up.” Attitudes like these are why coordinators like Kegler enjoy organizing events for servicemembers. These attitudes also help Kegler realize the value of an event like the Scavenger Hunt. “Events like these get the guys out of their rooms and motivated,” said Kegler. “I think sometimes they aren’t motivated to get out of their rooms, but once you get them out, they have a good time.” Bowles agrees events like these help boost morale and provide a positive alternative for servicemembers to spend their leisure time. “I think this is great entertainment,” said Bowles. “It’s a good thing for young sailors to do that’s fun and interesting, and helps them stay out of trouble.” In the end, it was ‘Forces of Nature’ made up of Spc. Robert Parker, Lisa Parker, YN3 Sam Ouch, and YN3 Angel Datil, who won the hunt. Each team member received a Sony Micro Hi-Fi component system. Second place went to ‘The Ringers’ with each team member receiving a fishing pole with tackle box, and a certificate for a free one-hour boat rental. Kegler says the hunt was a big success. “Just to see all of them come in this morning, ready to go, after we had done all the preparations, she said. “I think we had a good turnout and everyone said they had a good time.”

MWR’s Caribbean Coffee and Cream (aka: Triple ‘C’) held its grand opening during the gala weekend at the Bayview food complex. This Breyers Ice Cream and Starbucks “We proudly brew” Coffee Shop and internet ‘hot spot’ is sure to be a great meeting and greeting place for all base residents. Several months ago, there was a base wide survey taken to determine what food service additions to base life would most benefit morale of the servicemen and women at Guantanamo Bay. Among the many recommendations received was the desire for an ice cream parlor as a reminder of home. Next came the search for the best brand of ice cream to serve at the new facility and, of course, Breyers, America’s favorite ice cream brand, was chosen. The Branded Scooping Team and MWR, with only 12 weeks to prepare, went into action. Like any military operation, design, planning, logistics and communication were flawlessly executed which resulted in completing the mission on time. Failure was not an option. The barge carrying several pre-fabricated components, accessories, Breyers graphics and pallets of Breyers ice cream tubs steamed five days and nights from Jacksonville, Fla., making its way south through international waters to dock at one of America’s most famous military bases. Tracked by GPS and radio communications, the load arrived intact, unmelted and on schedule. The grand opening was held July 4. The Breyers Branded Scooping team proudly served as special consultants for the assembly and opening. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay serves as the cornerstone of U.S. military operations in the Caribbean Theater, and providing logistics support to both U.S. Navy and Coast Guard vessels and aircraft, and to assets of the assigned Joint Task Force Guantanamo.

9 Friday, July 7, 2006Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Mike Mullen addressed a packed audience at the Naval Air Systems Command Total Force Diversity Day on June 29. Mullen left no doubt about the importance of pursuing diversity at every level in the Navy, calling it a “strategic imperative” and reminding the attendees that the Navy is engaged around the globe. “Having the cultural skills, having the diverse backgrounds in order to literally achieve our mission is really critical”, said Mullen. “That is why [diversity] is a strategic imperative.” This level of engagement, he argued, requires a much better understanding of cultural norms and values than Sailors typically have right now. While the CNO noted that the Navy has made great strides in improving diversity in recent years, the pace of globalization and the war on terrorism have made it necessary to renew those efforts and adopt change even faster. “We’ve got to create a sense of urgency and a belief and a commitment,” he said. “Leadership has to say it: ‘We’ve got to change.’” Mullen noted that the Navy has created a new Diversity Concept of Operations, which lays the groundwork for how the service will seek to improve both awareness and opportunities at all leadership levels. Diversity, the CNO stressed, is about creating opportunities for all, not breaking down barriers for some. And he pressed the audience hard to begin a healthy dialogue about the subject. “Part of how we got here is because we’re afraid to talk about the subject. We don’t know how to talk about it. We’ve got to get over that.CNO calls diversity a strategic imperativeFrom Chief of Naval Operations Public AffairsAmongst friends, it’s a challenging issue. We worry about ticking people off, about saying the wrong thing,” he said. Understanding one another’s concerns was a vital first step to making progress, Mullen argued. “I can’t see diversity from a minority position,” he noted. “I have not grown up in those shoes. I didn’t live that way, and I need help understanding it. And I need understanding that that is the case, not an expectation that I would pick it up instantly.” Mullen also encouraged leaders in the Navy to take on what he termed “accountable mentorship.” He argued that leaders must consider it a primary responsibility to ensure the success of those they mentor, aggressively tracking career milestones. “As a mentor, it’s my responsibility to make sure that individual makes it,” he said. “We have got to get [diversity] right or it jeopardizes us as an institution. The Navy is my command,” Mullen added, “and this is a big part of making sure we get it right.” The stolen Department of Veterans Affairs laptop computer and hard drive containing the personal information of more than 26 million veterans were turned in to the FBI yesterday, the Veterans Affairs secretary said before Congress June 29. Reports indicate that the FBI has made a preliminary determination that data contained on the computer and hard drive has not been accessed. There have been no reports of identity theft or other criminal activity related to the stolen computer, R. James Nicholson told the House Veterans Affairs Committee. He added that the VA would still honor its promise of free credit monitoring for a year.

No persons are in custody at this time, officials said. The laptop and hard drive were stolen from the Montgomery County, Md., home of a VA employee on May 3. Government officials do not believe the data on the laptop was the target of the burglary, and consider the break-in a random theft. ”This has brought to the light of day some real deficiencies in the manner we handled personal data,” Nicholson said. “If there’s a redeeming part of this, I think we can turn this around.” July 17: Building computers, 1-3 p.m. July 20 21 : Free computer check-up, 1 3 p.m. July 28: Picnic at Hospital Cay, 1 3 p.m. July 29: Pool Party, 8 p.m midnight July 31: Pool Tournament, 1 3 p.m. Aug. 8, 9, & 10: Amazing Race Aug. 14-18: Bowling Tournament, 1 3 p.m. Aug. 25 : Back-to-school dance Aug. 26: Nickelodeon Family-Fun Day For more information, call the Oasis Teen Center at 2096.Oasis Teen Center summer schedule CNO Adm.
