CNN Pentagon correspondent Chris Lawrence is reporting this week from Guantanamo Bay with exclusive access and interviews. Lawrence reported on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer:
“Wolf, when we got down in some of the cell blocks, we couldn't help but notice that the guards are wearing splash guards. These are plastic masks that protect them from the feces and urine that's being thrown at them at times.
And tonight, you know, some of those guards, for the first time, here on CNN, are going on camera to tell their side of the story.
CNN got exclusive access to Camps five and six, where most of the detainees are being held. We saw individual cells, media rooms with leg shackles bolted to the ground, and communal areas that used to be filled with detainees.”

The White House released more than 100 pages of e-mails on Wednesday in a bid to quell critics who say President Barack Obama and his aides played politics with national security following the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
The exchanges detailing discussions between top Obama administration officials from multiple agencies suggest the CIA took the lead in developing talking points to describe the attack last September 11 that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

After spending 17 days trapped beneath the rubble of a collapsed building, 19-year-old seamstress Reshma talks to CNN's Leone Lakhani (@LeoneCNN) about her ordeal from her hospital bed in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
While cracks in the building had already been detected, Reshma said her managers blamed it on water damage, and it was okay for her to continue working.
"Everyone was looking to see which parts were cracked. So I went in and I see that there's a wall where a little bit is cracked," Reshma recalls. "The managers said this is just water damage, and you guys can work."

Last night, in response to the news that actress and activist Angelina Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning that she carried the BRCA1 gene, CNN's Piers Morgan welcomed back Debbie Wasserman Schultz to share her own experience with both breast and ovarian cancer.
"It was like reading my own story and reliving my own decision," said Wasserman Schultz who tested positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation and opted to have both a double mastectomy and to have her ovaries removed. "It's not an easy decision to have your breasts removed and to force yourself into early menopause."
Today on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Senator Susan Collins of Maine spoke about revelations about the IRS, the Boston bombings investigation and the Benghazi hearings. A full transcript of the interview may be found here.
Sen. Collins on IRS targeting of conservative groups:
COLLINS: "This is truly outrageous. And it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government. It is absolutely chilling that the IRS was singling out conservative groups for extra review. And I think that it's very disappointing that the president hasn't personally condemned this and spoken out. His spokesman has said it should be investigated, but the president needs to make crystal clear that this is totally unacceptable in America.”Collins says IRS revelations will fuel government distrust
