Guantanamo : Facility, Security & Legal Considerations Hardback
Edited by Dominique Vannier
Since 2002, the United States has operated military detention facilities at its Naval Station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to hold individuals detained during overseas counter-terrorism operations.
In 2009, the President directed the closure of these facilities within one year.
Since then, a number of statues have prohibited the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United States.
This book describes the current Guantanamo Bay detention facilities and infrastructure; examines the DoD corrections facilities and factors to be considered if these facilities were used to hold the detainees; and discusses other security and legal considerations.
