Since 2002, an estimated 779 men were detained. Nearly all were Muslims. Another 664 men were transferred from Guantanamo. It now holds 166 indefinitely.
According to US government records, 92% aren't terrorists. They're not Al Qaeda fighters. Eighty-six men cleared for release remain detained.
Another 46 are indefinitely held without charge or trial. Washington claims they can neither be released or prosecuted.
Twenty-two or more prisoners were under 18 when captured. Twelve or more fear torture or persecution if returned to their home countries. They'll remain detained until or unless other nations offer them safe havens.
Ten years or longer reflect how long most men have been held without charge or trial. Nine died in captivity. Two were forcibly sent to Algeria "despite credible fears of abuse."
No US government officials have been held accountable. None will be. They freely get away with murder, torture, and other unconscionable abuses. They do it out of sight and mind.
Obama authorized it. He's guilty of gross crimes against humanity. So are other complicit government and Pentagon officials.
Guantanamo remains open. Obama won't close it. The New York Times tried having it both ways. On November 25, 2012, it headlined "Close Guantanamo Prison."
