    Admiral in charge of Guantanamo detention center fired: no reasons given

    Admiral Ring, a former commander of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, was the 18th leader of the prison operations that began in January 2002.

    The US admiral in charge of the Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba “has been fired” due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command,” US Southern Command said in a statement on Sunday. Rear Admiral John Ring was removed from the post on Saturday, the brief statement said, without giving details about why.
