Guantanamo Camp Costs $900,000 A Year Per Inmate

WASHINGTON, May 3 (Reuters) - It's been dubbed the most expensive prison on Earth and President Barack Obama cited the cost this week as one of many reasons to shut down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, which burns through some $900,000 per prisoner annually.

The Pentagon estimates it spends about $150 million each year to operate the prison and military court system at the U.S. Naval Base in Cuba, which was set up 11 years ago to house foreign terrorism suspects. With 166 inmates currently in custody, that amounts to an annual cost of $903,614 per prisoner.

By comparison, super-maximum security prisons in the United States spend about $60,000 to $70,000 at most to house their inmates, analysts say. And the average cost across all federal prisons is about $30,000, they say.

here's my prediction...
they'll get the 450 mill...make it disappear
shut it down one year later.

why not get that one big payday before the scam is up ? :noidea:

Don't you know that it's expensive to send all those Kosher meals to Cuba?
