"It has been ten years now since the first 'terrorists' arrived at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Of the 779 people who have been detained at Guantanamo over the years, 171 still remain. Of those 171 prisoners, 46 are 'indefinite detainees' who will neither be charged nor released, 89 are eligible for release or transfer but are still held in the prison camps, 6 face death-penalty trials that may begin this year, 4 are convicted war criminals, and 1 is serving a life sentence."
