Military Expands 'Obama's Gitmo' in Afghanistan


www.wired.com

The U.S. military is getting set to expand its controversial detention camp at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan — just as new reports of a “black jail” inside the facility are surfacing.

In a solicitation issued today, the U.S. military put out a request for a contractor to build three new detention housing units next to the existing facility, known formally as the Afghan National Detention Facility at Parwan (Bagram is in the southwest corner of Parwan Province).

A quote from your source," The three new detention housing units include one (1) Special Housing Unit (SHU) and two (2) Detention Housing Units (DHU). The approximate size of all three units combined is 9,924sm. The military has maintained that there is no separate facility at Bagram: In a bloggers’ roundtable earlier this year, Navy Vice Adm. Robert Harward emphasized that there were “no black jails” at Bagram, but he did clarify that there was a short period of detention at undisclosed “field-detention sites,” where Afghan and U.S. authorities hold individuals to determine who they are and whether they have any actionable intelligence."
So are we to believe the Army when they say that their are no more Black Jails?
Well then let the Red Cross and the red crescent go in and evaluate the jail again.
What irks me is that Amerika will spend around 20 million dollars and give the jail over to Afghanistan in less than a year after it is built!
