The Tribunals were authorized to recommend whether or not to confirm captives' "enemy combatant" status. "Noncompliant detainees wear orange uniforms, graduating to tan and to white as their cooperation improves. Comfort items vary depending on behavior."
The Board hearings were authorized to whether captives continued to represent a threat, or whether they continued to hold "intelligence value. The uniforms are notable because the captive's answers to officer's questions about their uniforms played a role in the determination as to whether they should be released.
Level 1 detainees wear white "uniforms" and share living spaces with other detainees. At the other end of the spectrum, Level 4 detainees wear orange, hospital scrub-type outfits and have fewer privileges. Other privileges unique to Camp 4 include electric fans in the bays, ice water available around the clock, plastic tubs with lids for the detainees to store their personal items, and the white uniforms. White is a more culturally respected color and also serves as an incentive to detainees in other camps.
Captives who were regarded as "non-compliant" were issued orange uniforms.
