Guantanamo's 'more evil twin'?

It is a US-run prison built from scratch on an US military base to hold "enemy combatants" captured in the so-called "war on terror".

Those imprisoned there have never been charged with a crime, nor do they have any meaningful way of challenging their detention. The inmates allege abuse at the hands of their captors, ranging from sleep deprivation to brutal beatings. And no, it is not Guantanamo Bay.
