"Secret camp inside Gitmo confirmed."

AP reports:

For the first time, the top commander of detention operations at Guantanamo has confirmed the existence of the mysterious Camp 7. […]

Guantanamo commanders said Camp 7 is for key alleged al-Qaida members, who must be kept apart from other prisoners to prevent them from retaliating against long-term detainees who have talked to interrogators. They also want the location kept secret for fear of terrorist attack. […]

Red Cross representatives have visited Camp 7 and all the other detention facilities at Guantanamo, confirmed Geoff Loane, head of the humanitarian organization’s delegation in Washington. He declined to give details.
