4. I don't know about this
Just the portion in the OP makes me question the whole piece.

Guantanamo Bay has been used to incarcerate dozens of terrorists

Names, please.

who have admitted plotting

Did they "admit" this after being tortured?

terrifying attacks against the West

Why would reportage use the inflammatory adjective "terrifying?"

while imprisoning more than 150 totally innocent people

"More than?" How many "more?"

almost ten years of controversial interrogations

Instead of saying torture, this must be the UK's version of "enhanced interrogation."

on the worlds most dangerous terrorists.

Oh? According to whom?

At first, I was going to alert this as a misplaced opinion piece, but it is being carried on the website as "news." I expect this from the US Pravda media, but not necessarily the UK.
