Representative Marsha Blackburn (TN-7th District) will visit the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba this weekend to review the facility's procedures for holding and questioning detainees.
"Visiting our Guantanamo Bay Naval Base gives me the chance to report back to Tennessee and the nation on the procedures being used at the facility. There are people making statements about Guantanamo Bay who have a great deal of opinion and little to no real information on the facility's work. I hope to help bring some solid information to the discussion. I also plan on talking with some of the men and women in uniform stationed there to get their take on things, and thank them for their work."
The Guatanamo Bay facility houses detainees suspected of links to al-Qaeda and other international terrorist organizations.
