(NEW YORK) — High-value detainees at Guantanamo Bay’s secretive Camp Seven enjoy the Fifty Shades of Grey series of novels, according to a congressman who recently toured the base.
The Huffington Post quoted Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) who recently received a tour of the secret camp from military officials as part of a congressional delegation. Moran said, “Rather than the Quran, the book that is requested most by the [high-value detainees] is Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Moran was joined on the tour by Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Reps. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) and Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) and former Pentagon Chief of Detainee Policy William Lietzau.
The tour was led by the commander of the base, the deputy commander, the head medical official and the officer in charge of Camp Seven.
According to the Huffington Post, Moran said that the conditions in Camp Seven are comparable to maximum security federal prisons. However, military officials do not publicly acknowledge the existence of Camp Seven.
