Respondents submit this supplemental status report regarding the delivery of unclassified

Combatant Status Review Tribunal (“CSRT”) records to petitioners’ counsel and state as follows:

1. In its July 11, 2008 Order, ¶ 2.K, the Court required the parties to report “on any

agreement for the government to provide unclassified portions of the CSRT records to petitioners

who have had their CSRT reviews by July 31, 2008.”

2. In the parties July 21, 2008 Joint Report at 17, respondents stated:

Respondents have agreed that they would provide to a petitioner’s counsel the
unclassified portions of the CSRT record pertaining to that petitioner, where
petitioner’s counsel have not previously had access to the unclassified or classified
CSRT record either through habeas litigation or litigation in the Court of Appeals
under the Detainee Treatment Act. Respondents anticipate providing such
unclassified materials by July 31, 2008, or shortly thereafter. If this undertaking is
not complete by July 31, 2008, respondents will provide a status report to the
Court on August 1, 2008, updating the Court regarding the matter and providing
an anticipated completion date.

3. Respondents were unable to produce the unclassified portions of the CSRT records by

July 31, 2008. Review of said materials for possible designation of unclassified information as

“protected information” under the protective order regime is ongoing.

4. Respondents expect and intend to serve the unclassified CSRT materials on counsel for

petitioners no later than August 6, 2008.
