Product Description:

Discover the startling truth about the U.S. Naval base that became a flashpoint for controversy in the post-9/11 world in this documentary tracing the curious history of Guantanamo Bay. Commonly known as "Gitmo," the oldest overseas U.S. military base can be found 400 miles south of Florida, near the easternmost tip of Cuba. An anomaly in American military bases due to the fact that it's situated in a Communist country, Guantanamo Bay is spread out over 45 square miles. In 1903 it was leased from America's then-trading partner Cuba for $2000 in gold a year. When President Eisenhower cut diplomatic relations with the island country in 1961, an extended fence was erected around the perimeter. Today that fence is patrolled on both sides around the clock. Just what secrets does the American government keep hidden from the public in this secluded and heavily fortified base' Find out the answer to this question and more as you take a rare trip inside the base that was once referred to by President Barack Obama as a "sad chapter in American history."
