I told you I'm not going to criticize my successor. I'll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don't believe that persuasion isn't going to work. Therapy isn't going to cause terrorists to change their mind.

WHAT DOES GITMO MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Gitmo

Guantanamo Bay Naval Base

Coordinates: 19°54′N 75°9′W / 19.900°N 75.150°W / 19.900; -75.150 Map of Cuba showing location of Guantánamo Bay on the southeastern coast. Map of Guantánamo Bay showing approximate U.S. Naval Boundaries. Guantanamo Bay Naval Base is located on 45 square miles of land and water at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, which the United States leased for use as a coaling and naval station in the Cuban–American Treaty of 1903. The base is on the shore of Guantánamo Bay at the southeastern end of Cuba. It is the oldest overseas U.S. Naval Base, and the only U.S. military installation in a country with whom the United States has no diplomatic relations. Since 1959 the Cuban government has consistently protested against the US presence on Cuban soil and called it illegal under modern international law, since the military base was imposed on Cuba by force. At the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2013, Cuba's Foreign Minister demanded the US return the base and the "usurped territory" occupied since the US invasion of Cuba at the turn of the 20th century.
