Abstract:Information access rights are an important component of international human rights. Information access rights and realities at Guantánamo Bay Detention Camp are compared and contrasted with those at supermax and military prisons within the United States and are analyzed within the context of international human rights. The effects of limiting information access are considered in relation to both detainee wellbeing and to the reputation of the United States as a global leader in human rights.
