U.S. backs ban on 3 reporters at Guantanamo

U.S. backs ban on 3 reporters at Guantanamo 15 Jun 2010 The Department of Defense said Monday it acted correctly when it barred three journalists, including Miami Herald reporter Carol Rosenberg, from covering military hearings at Guantánamo Bay. But it left open the door to reinstating the reporters. David A. Schulz, the attorney representing Rosenberg and reporters from Canwest News Service and the Toronto Star, had asked for a reversal of the coverage ban. The exclusion also affects a fourth reporter from The Globe and Mail who appealed independently.
