The United States launched an international war on terrorism in response to the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. As a result, young people are bombarded with images of Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, battles taking place in Iraq and Afghanistan, and prisoners of war held in Guantanamo Bay. Using related images set in a magazine-like design, this series examines a number of developing events related to the war on terrorism, reflecting the latest, most up-to-date information available. With lively, straightforward writing and dramatic images from the front, these books offer a gripping narrative to complement and enhance today's headlines. There are about 600 prisoners of America's war on terrorism being held at the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Gitmo, as it is referred to, is at the core of an international debate over America's decision to detain enemy combatants there and to refuse prisoner-of-war status to detainees. This compelling book traces the history of the naval station, defines the legal status of prisoners of war and enemy combatants, describes life on the base, and explains the military tribunal process. It also predicts the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June 2004 that allows these detainees to legally challenge their detentions.
