The detention center at Guantanamo Bay is one of the most notorious prisons in the world.
It's located on the eastern edge of Cuba, on a sprawling naval base where ABC News' David Muir and his team recently traveled.
Since the Sept. 11 attacks, the prison has held nearly 800 detainees, more than 700 of whom have been subsequently cleared for release and transferred to 59 countries, including Uruguay, Albania and Bermuda.
Currently, 19 detainees are cleared for transfer to other countries, which leaves 41 that the U.S. government refuses to release.

Among those prisoners are the so-called worst of the worst, including Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.
