"In May 2008, in a submission to the 48th Session of the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child, the Pentagon claimed that it had only held eight juveniles -- those under the age of 18 when their alleged crimes took place -- during the life of the Guantanamo Bay prison. This, however, was a lie, as its own documents providing the names and dates of birth of prisoners, released in May 2006, showed that the true total was much higher." (06/15/11)
