About Guantánamo Bay Prison

“Sometimes, we just didn’t get the right folks.”

— Brigadier General Jay Hood, the top American officer in Guantanamo, to Wall Street Journal, 2005
 
On January 11, 2002, the first 20 prisoners picked up in Afghanistan arrived in Guantánamo, where the Bush administration believed they would be out of reach of U.S. courts. News photos show the men dressed in orange jumpsuits, shackled, with gloves, goggles, surgical masks and headphones for sensory deprivation.. [photo] Hundreds more prisoners followed.
 
But who are they, and were they really the so-called “worst of the worst”?
