Description

The cost of running Guantanamo Bay's prison and court system climbed by nearly $90 million from 2013 to 2018, even though the number of prisoners housed there has fallen. Amna Nawaz talks to The New York Times' Carol Rosenberg about the factors contributing to the rising costs and whether there's any political appetite to move Guantanamo's so-called "forever prisoners" to another site.
