Location
    (1898- )
    U.S. Naval Station
    Leased perpetually by the United States government (February 23, 1903)
    Rented for the 1934 equivalent value of $4,085 a year
    Home to 9,500 U.S. troops
    Setting of the movies 'A Few Good Men (1992)' and 'Bad Boys II (2003)'
    Lazy journalists refer to it as 'Gitmo.'
    It was leased to the United States by the first President of Cuba, who happened to be an American.
    It is part of the war spoils from the Spanish-American War (1898).
    The Cuban Constitution was forced to add the Platt Amendment to make Guantanamo Bay legitimate.
    Since this was done using force, many believe that makes the base void on grounds of violations of the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.
    It is the only U.S. base in operation on communist soil.
    The Cubans cut off water to the base, causing it to import water from Jamaica and build desalination plants.
    Only two elderly Cubans are allowed to work there by the Cuban government.
    Only one rent check has been cashed by Fidel Castro.
    Many prisoners are being held there without a charge or legal representation.
    It is accused of torturing its captives.
    Christopher Columbus spent the night there (1494).
    Rasul v. Bush overturned the ruling that people detained here are outside U.S. jurisdiction and do not have Constitutional rights (2004).
    It can only be abandoned with the consent of both parties.
    If the U.S. leaves, it will belong to Fidel Castro's Cuba, which isn't a fan of human rights either.
    It is used as a detainment facility for al-Qaeda and Taliban prisoners.
    The U.S. and Cuba agreed to exchange Cuba's refugees for America's escaped fugitives.
