Here is a link to an article at AFP, entitled “Pentagon bans four reporters from Guantanamo trials,” which reports that several named reporters have been banned from attending and reporting on events at Guantanamo Bay.

The Pentagon said Thursday reporters from the Miami Herald and three Canadian news organizations, the Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail and CanWest news service, had violated a request from the military judge to keep the identity of the witness secret.

“As a result of these violations, these individual reporters are barred from returning to cover future Military Commissions proceedings,” Colonel Dave Lapan wrote in an email to the reporters’ editors.
