Gitmo consumes $900,000 per prisoner annually

‘Astronomical costs’: Gitmo consumes $900,000 per prisoner annually — RT News: "Maintenance of Guantanamo has been revealed to cost over $150 million each year, with immediate estimates citing it one of the most expensive prisons in the world. This comes as the hunger strike at the detention facility is far from over. Follow RT’s day-by-day timeline of the Gitmo hunger strike. The prison camp situated at the US naval base in Cuba costs over $900,000 annually per prisoner, placing it far above the country’s maximum security prisons, which in comparison, cost $60,000 to $70,000 per prisoner. With 166 detainees, Gitmo devours over $150 million each year."

Is this stimulus spending?
