On November 29, 2003 the Seattle Post-Intelligencer published an article outlining the cases of four individuals recently charged with security breaches at Guantanamo Bay. Army Col. Jack Farr, two Arabic translators and Muslim chaplain James Yee face charges ranging from espionage to adultery at the base, where interrogators are questioning some 660 detainees from 44 countries. According to the article, the military released Chaplain Yee on Tuesday, but at the same time pressed additional charges of storing pornography on a government computer and committing adultery, an offense under the military code. Yee has pleaded innocent and faces a preliminary hearing Dec.1 at Fort Benning, Ga.
