Here is a guide to the location and source of capture of the last 41 captives of Guantánamo culled from a series of sources including leaked prison profiles and other U.S. military documents, court records, intelligence estimates compiled for the federal interagency Periodic Review Board and from the so-called Senate Torture Report, the executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee Study of the CIA’s Rendition, Detention and Interrogation Program, released in 2015. The Herald also consulted the Britain-based Rendition Project and Long War Journal to develop this list.
