FOX NewsThe "Twilight" series, a hit among so-called "tweens," is also popular with detainees, the camp's "librarian" said.

At Camp 6, a minimum security facility within sight of bright Caribbean waters, detainees can now watch flatscreen TVs suspended from above (and encased in protective plastic) or attend classes on personal finance -- all while their feet are chained to the floor.

At first, detainees were offered four channels via satellite television, but now detainees can choose from among 18 channels, including Al Jazeera English, a sports channel, and broadcasts focusing on Tunisia, Libya or Kuwait, according to McManus, who said "nature shows are very popular."

With a landscape dominated by concrete and steel, Camp 6 mirrors U.S. prisons featured in "prison life" documentaries on cable TV. Detainees are able to enroll in classes, including English classes and the new "life skills" class, which begins with "basic building blocks of personal finance" and then moves into "business finance" and other "vocational" subjects, said McManus, calling the skills class "probably the biggest recent change."

At Camp 4, another minimum security facility, detainees live among barbed-wire fences and can play games on a Playstation3 console or enjoy a game of foosball, just feet away from a copy of President Obama's executive order, signed two days after taking office, to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camps by the end of January 2010.

When it was declared one of Obama's victories in the thread on Obama's job approval rating some time ago, I wonder if it had actually closed since I heard nothing about it beyond Obama issuing the executive order to do. So, six months after the self-imposed deadline, Gitmo is still open and a life worth dying for. So now you know.

Nice minimal security level. Overhere that means you could almost walk straight out the front door (well that's pushing it a bit perhaps). =p

It's pathetic hat these people haven't been ship to various US prisons yet to enjoy US prison standards and trial/justice standards.

By the sounds of it, I'd rather be in Gitmo. There cohorts that have already been shipped stateside "enjoy" 23 hours a day in their cramped cells. US prison is pretty cushy by most comparisons, but this is cushier.

Personally I think it's bettert to educate rather than punish.

Obviously punish the rule breakers but then don't brainwash them or keep them in a ceel all day-you'll a create an angry mob of mean people! Instead why not educate them in what they have done wrong etc?

While I tend to agree, these aren't your average inmates.

They have morales though, they are no different then we are. I would say we are more inhumane then them however.

To be fair most of them just fight for what they believe is to be right.

Are we much different?

The majority of these people were caught participating in terrorist acts. How you could possibly say these people are more humane then us? Not saying they're some terrible monsters, but they aren't exactly Mother Teresa either.
