Guatanamo Bay, Inside One The Most Notorious Prisons (Photos)
The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a United States military prison located within Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, also referred to as Guantanamo or GTMO in Cuba.

Since the inmates have been detained indefinitely without trial and several inmates were severely tortured, the operations of this camp are considered to be a major breach of human rights by Amnesty International.

The camp was established by President George W. Bush's administration in 2002 during the War on Terror.

His successor, President Barack Obama, promised that he would close it, but met strong bipartisan opposition, with Congress passing laws to prohibit detainees from Guantanamo being imprisoned in the United States.

During Obama's administration, the number of inmates was reduced from about 245 to 41 most former detainees were freed and transferred to other countries.
