The Navy developed an elaborate plan to avoid public awareness of its operations to detain enemy combatants at its brig near Charleston, S.C., including withdrawing information from websites and redacting public documents, according to the Charleston Post and Courier. The paper said it had obtained a 17-page document describing how the Naval Consolidated Brig created a secret brig within the brig for use in the anti-terrorism effort. (2/23/07)
