Live Body Counts at Guantanamo

The US currently holds about 600 prisoners in Guantanamo, of whom 367 have been identified by a Washington Post research editor. They have a list of their names, countries, and release status at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/nation/guantanamo_nationalities.html I am astounded at the clarity of the message given by the counts of these prisoners by country. Here is the list of 29 countries (plus 2 unknowns) below. Feel free to check my count. Afghanistan 44 Algeria 8 Australia 2 Bahrain 6 Belgium 1 Canada 2 Denmark 1 Egypt 2 France 7 Iraq 1 Jordan 5 Kuwait 13 Libya 1 Maldives 1 Mauritania 1 Morocco 14 Pakistan 60 Russia 8 Saudi Arabia 90 Spain 1 Sudan 4 Sweden 1 Tajikistan 3 Tunisia 6 Turkey 10 Uganda 1 United Kingdom 9 United States 1 Unknown 2 Yemen 62
