This list of Guantánamo detainees is compiled from various sources and is incomplete. It lists the known identities of detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detainment camp in Cuba. In official documents, the US Department of Defense (DoD) continues to make intermittent efforts to redact detainee's names, and has not published an official list of detainees (As of September 2005). On April 19, 2006, the DoD released a list with 558 names in what appears to be a fax or other scanned image.[1] Associated Press published the list in more accessible text form.[2] Not all of these names have been copied to this page yet. Since there is no further commentary from the DoD, it is unclear whether this list is official. It is called official by the Associated Press.

The Washington Post maintains a list of the detainees known or suspected to have been held in Guantánamo Bay.[3]

The United States has long maintained camps at Guantánamo Bay for attempted illegal immigrants captured while trying to get to the United States, usually from Cuba, Haiti, or the Dominican Republic.

On March 3, 2006 the DoD partially complied with a court order to release the names of the remaining Guantánamo detainees. The court order required the DoD to release the names of all the detainees.[4] Initially, the DoD released only 317 names. On April 19, 2006, the DoD released a list with 558 names.

Although justice Jed Rakoff had already dismissed this argument, Pentagon spokesmen Bryan Whitman justified withholding the names out of a concern for the detainees' privacy.

On April 20, 2006 the DoD released a portable document format file that listed 558 names. [1] The 558 individuals on the list were those whose detention had been reviewed by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal (CSRT). The list gave the detainee's ID number, their name, and their home country.

The names of several hundred detainees who had been released prior to the commencement of the CSRTs were not released. The list did not specify whether the detainees were still in detention at Guantanamo; whether they had been determined to be "enemy combatants"; whether they were released, or repatriated to the custody of their home countries.

On May 15, 2006, the DOD released what they called a complete list of all 759 former and current inmates who had been held in military custody in the detainment camps after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) action was filed by the Associated Press.[5][6]

On June 17, 2013, The Miami Herald published a list, obtained using the Freedom of Information Act, of 48 prisoners who were designated for indefinite detainment.[7] [8]


The list

775 detainees have been brought to Guantanamo. Although most of these have been released without charge, the United States government continues to classify many of these released detainees as "enemy combatants". As of August 2013, 164 detainees remain at Guantanamo.[9] As of December 2008, around 50-60 detainees have been cleared for release, but have not been released due to "difficulties" in "repatriating" them.[10] The unrepatriated include ethnic Uyghurs, who were training to fight for independence from the Chinese government in Xinjiang province. Chinese authorities want to take action against them.[10]

Individuals with "SAMWL" are listed on the Saudi Arabian most wanted list, released in February 2009.

Details about six deaths reported as suicides and reports of attempted suicides is at Guantanamo suicide attempts.
