Guantanamo Bay is one of the most controversial places on Earth. The U.S. Naval Base has been home to a detention camp since 2002, and the site of numerous allegations of human rights abuses. The detention camp has been dubbed "Gitmo" by many, and has been a source of much international criticism. The Cuban government has repeatedly called for the closure of the base, and the United Nations has condemned the human rights abuses that have taken place there.
