"Impotence-promoting" drugs. The threat of a "nuclear hellstorm." Prisoners leashed like dogs and forced to urinate on themselves.

These are just a few of the shocking revelations found among the cache of over 700 classified military documents detailing the 779 people who have been detained at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.

Provided by WikiLeaks, the documents reveal that most of the 172 remaining detainees at the controversial facility have been rated as a "high risk" of posing a threat to the United States and its allies if released without adequate rehabilitation and supervision, according to the New York Times. And that's not all: as the Washington Post reports, the documents also offer some tantalizing glimpses into the top-secret operations of Osama bin Laden and other Al Qaeda officials.
