Guantanamo Bay Prison Commander Fired
The Department of Defense Southern Command said Rear Adm. John Ring was fired "due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command."
The commander of the prison at Guantanamo Bay has been relieved of his duties.
The Department of Defense Southern Command said in a statement that Rear Adm. John Ring was fired "due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command." The agency didn't give any specifics but said the move came after a monthlong investigation into Ring. A spokeswoman for the Southern Command told news outlets its leaders are held accountable "when they fall short."
Guantanamo's deputy commander, Brig. Gen. John Hussey, will serve as acting commander.
Southern Command said the leadership change won't "interrupt the safe, humane, legal care and custody provided to the detainee population" at Guantanamo Bay.
