"Guantanamo North" is a term used to describe Communication Management Units, self-contained groups at the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons. CMUs are filled predominately with Muslim inmates and phone calls, visits, and all communications with the outside world are severely restricted. Rights groups charge that the units constitute cruel and unusual punishment and have filed lawsuits accusing the facilities of some of the same due process complaints raised by Guantanamo detainees.
