The Heat: Guantanamo Prison

The Heat

The infamous U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is now in operation for 20 years.

Hundreds of men, suspected of terrorism, were rounded up in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries after 9/11 as the U.S. pursued its “war on terror.” They were sent to the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo. Many accused the U.S. of torturing them while in detention there. And, most of the almost 800 detainees have since been released without ever being charged or facing trial. Bus despite repeated calls for the facility to be closed down, it is still in operation today.
