Camp Seven (also known as Camp Platinum) is the most guarded and protected camp recognised inside the Guantanamo Bay detainment camps, in Cuba. Its permanence was kept a mystery for the first two years of its use. It was built to hold the fourteen “high-value detainees” who had been held by the CIA and were transported to military confinement on September 6, 2006 

 According to a 2012 Government Accountability Office report, however, the men are held in individual cells to restrict their communication with each other. Some of the only other details to have surfaced include detainee allegations of mistreatment there and pronouncements made by the few attorneys who’ve been sanctioned and permitted to visit them. 

Some have speculated that the sounds and noises are linked to the secret facility secretly falling apart. The former general liable and responsible for the detention facility told Congress in 2014 that Camp 7 was intended to be temporary and had become “increasingly unsustainable due to drainage and foundation issues.” It requires frequent repair, he added and should be replaced. Congress refused the proposed $49 million and $69 million projects, respectively. Bin al Shibh attorney James Harrington does not believe the foundation, which a Pentagon spokesman once called “heaving and buckling,” is responsible for the noises. 

One of the more prominent items of contention between detainees’ representation and the militaries is whether force-feeding constitutes torture. The process involves threading a lubricated tube through a detainee’s nostril, down his throat and into his stomach. A liquid nutritional supplement like Ensure is then sent through the tube. A detainee once described the experience as “like having a dagger shoved down your throat.” The U.S. adamantly defends its use. Speaking before the U.N. in 2014 to defend U.S. compliance with the Convention Against Torture, Brigadier General Richard Gross insisted that “enteral feeding,” as the U.S. refers to the process, was only used as a last resort to address medical issues such as malnutrition resulting from the hunger strike.
