The naval base at Guantanamo Bay secured a place in the annals of history when the first wave of detainees from America's War on Terrormen dubbed "the worst of the worst"arrived in 2002. A symbol of freedom protected or freedom tragically betrayed, the controversies of Guantanamo embody the thorny issues of America's fight against an enemy that wears no uniform, has no address and will declare no armistice, and an administration's battle to keep prisoners beyond the reach of due process in American courts. The goings-on inside the wire encircling this highly classified camp have been a closely held government secret, until now.
For the first time, National Geographic exclusively captures day-to-day life in the most famous prison in the worldexploring the ongoing daily struggle between the guard force of dedicated young military personnel and the equally dedicated detainees, many of whom are still in legal limbo after being held for seven years.
