 Definition A military-operated extrajudicial detention facility created by the George W. Bush Administration for selected captives apprehended during the war on terror; ordered closed by the Obama administration but apparently will remain in operation indefinitely [d] [e]

This is a move back into mainspace, in which I'm bringing things to be more current, especially with the steps to close the camp, and also continuing to improve sources and minimize advocacy. Howard C. Berkowitz 19:13, 20 December 2009 (UTC)


Not to be too nitpicky on one evening, Howard, but would it not be more logical to put "creation and organization" of Gitmo first and put the closure plans at the end, or at least after the bit about its start?

By the way, I seem to remember that Gitmo had been in use briefly as a detention camp during the 1990s. I think I read that in a recent article in The Weekly Standard. Michel van der Hoek 03:56, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Feel free to reorder; this is an article that I retrieved, but it hasn't been my focus in the area; I've been working more on the various extrajudicial detention, U.S. articles and subarticles, as well as the war and policy articles.
Guantanamo certainly was used as a detention camp for Haitian refugees, but that involved no interrogation. Howard C. Berkowitz 04:03, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
