Lawyers for Guantanamo prisoners charged in the Sept. 11 attack say the FBI has questioned more people who work as support staff on their legal teams than previously disclosed, a development that may prompt a new detour in an already snarled case when the war crimes tribunal reconvenes Monday at the U.S. base in Cuba.

As he walks to a closed-door security briefing, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., comments on the creation of a secret “Cuban Twitter" — a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, Thursday, April 3, 2014, on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Obama administration project, which lasted more than two years and drew tens of thousands of subscribers, sought to evade Cuba's stranglehold on the Internet with a primitive social media platform. First, the network would build a Cuban audience, mostly young people; then, the plan was to push them toward dissent. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

In this March 3, 2014, photo, a woman uses her cellphone in Camajuani, Cuba. The U.S. Agency for International Development masterminded the creation of a "Cuban Twitter," a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. The project, which lasted more than two years and drew tens of thousands of subscribers, sought to evade Cuba’s stranglehold on the Internet with a primitive social media platform. Its users were neither aware it was created by a U.S. agency with ties to the State Department, nor that American contractors were gathering personal data about them. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)

Cuban intelligence agent Fernando Gonzalez, known as one of the "Cuban Five," speaks during a press conference in Havana, Cuba, Monday, June 2, 2014. Gonzalez who spent years in jail in the United States says the exchange of five Taliban detainees for a U.S. Army sergeant held captive in Afghanistan could set a precedent for a similar swap with Cuba. Gonzalez said Monday that the only thing needed is political will by the Obama administration to negotiate a swap of U.S. government subcontractor Alan Gross for three Cuban agents still imprisoned in the United States.
