ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of a debate on the future of the American prison Camp X-Ray at the Guantánamo Bay naval base in Cuba on January 11, 2011 held by the New America Foundation in Washington, DC. Guantanamo is regarded by some as a symbol of the U.S. war on terrorism, while others see it as an assault on the U.S. Constitutional order, claims moderator Patrick Doherty, the foundation's Counterterrorism Strategy Initiative director. Two years after U.S. President Barack Obama ordered its closure, the prison still holds 173 detainees.
