Guantanamo Bay more expensive per detainee than a super-max prison

  • $900k+ dollars per year in cost for a detainee at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. The Pentagon estimates that the facility costs about $150 million to run per year (the prison itself, as well as its military court system), which comes to the above amount when averaged across Guantanamo’s 166 remaining prisoners. 
  • $60k+ dollars per year for an inmate at a super-maximum security prison within the United States — less than 10% of the cost of a Guantanamo Bay detainee. President Obama has touted cost in recent days, as part of renewed rhetoric on closing the detention facility, likely spurred by a harrowing hunger strike amongst a majority of those still held there. source
