Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Why is Guantanamo Bay still open? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
Guantanamo Bay opened in the shadow of the 9/11 attacks 20 years ago.
It was meant to be a temporary detention centre for the biggest threats to U.S. national security, as part of the so-called ‘War on Terror’.
But the place soon became notorious for human rights abuses and torture.
Most of its detainees have been released without charge.
