3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Brigadier General Rick Baccus, Commander Camp Delta:
"Camp Delta facility includes not only the areas where the detainees will be kept, but will also include the fleet hospital. What this does for us is two different things, first it obviously allows us to increase the security posture that we have in this area, not only for the safety of the detainees, but more importantly the safety of all the service men and women that work in the facility. And secondly, it allows us to establish a more efficient facility, in that we are able to care for the detainees in a much more efficient manner, the manpower usage is greatly reduced, so the wear and tear on the service men and women that are dealing with the detainees on a daily basis is significantly reduced. As of right now, in the area behind us, we have 300 detainees, as we speak."

US military guards have transferred 300 suspects of the war on terrorism under stringent security from makeshift cells at Camp X-ray to a permanent new facility at Camp Delta on the US military base at Guantanamo Bay.
The transfer, which the media was banned from covering, began on Sunday and was completed on Monday.
U-S Army Brigadier General Rick Baccus, in charge of the Guantanamo detention mission, refused to say how the 300 accused Taliban or al-Qaida fighters were transferred to their new prison. But he did say it was similar to the way the men were taken from the airstrip, when they arrived at the US base in eastern Cuba, to Camp X-ray.
When the first detainees arrived in January, the media were given access to their arrival and were allowed to watch as the men were searched, manacled and put aboard buses to Camp X-ray. The new 16.4 (m) million (US) dollar seaside facility contains 408 cells and could eventually be expanded to more than 2,000 cells.
Camp Delta will give detainees metal beds with foam mattresses, flush toilets, wash basins in each cell, and exercise areas. In Camp X-ray, detainees had foam pads on a concrete floor and either used buckets or had to be led from their cells to use portable toilets.
The opening of the new camp, originally set for April 12, was delayed because of last-minute changes, on which officials refused to elaborate. Baccus said journalists were not allowed to watch the transfer because of "operational security" issues.
Journalists were taken to Camp Delta after the transfer was completed on Monday. But they were forced to stand more than 200 yards away and, because of camouflage netting shrouding the fence, could see only the roof tops of the cells.
At X-ray, journalists could see the detainees in their cells. Earlier this month, the military withdrew media access to a field hospital where detainees receive medical care. Previously, reporters were allowed to routinely tour the compound.
