The Closing of Camp 5- Updated....

Carol Rosenberg had a piece out over the weekend (Miami Herald) about some changes at Gitmo- the downsizing of the base. Seems they have closed the notorious camp 5 (not quite as notorious as Camp 7 but that is a different story). Camp 5 was most recently used as the prison for those on extra punishment. It opened a few months before Camp 6 back in 2005. You can catch a few glimpses of the place in Carol's article here. I will see if I can find some other photos and link to them.
It really added insult to injury to house the men at Camp 5- men who were never charged with anything (nevertheless a crime) were stuck in Camp 5 because they were troublemakers for the most part- they refused to just accept their unjust "detention."

Here is a photo montage of Camp 5.

Good riddance Camp 5!
