GuantanamoBlending personal stories with legal opinion and political debate, Guantanamo examines the detention of over 650 individuals since 2002 at the US naval base in Cuba. In this time the US government has refused to term the Guantanamo Bay detainees prisoners of war or claim they are criminals awaiting trial. They can receive no protection from either the Geneva Convention or from the US criminal justice system. They are in a state of limbo, neither one thing nor the other. They are officially held on the grounds of national security, a situation decried by legal experts the world over for its lack of due process.

Guantanamo – ‘Honor Bound To Defend Freedom’ explores the questions surrounding the detention centre and asks how much damage it, and the war on terror, is doing to Western democratic values.
