This week marked the fourth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. To commemorate the event, Slate, with our partners at Magnum, presents an interactive audio slide show about the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. Photographer Paolo Pellegrin photographed the camp and its prisoners in 2006. The essay also includes photos of released detainees in London, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Afghanistan.
