Washington — Military officials say the commander of the task force that runs the prison at the U.S. Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has been fired for a “loss of confidence in his ability to command.”
A statement from U.S. Southern Command says Navy Rear Adm. John Ring was relieved of those duties Saturday. The facility’s deputy commander, Army Brig. Gen. John Hussey, has been designated as acting commander.
“[The firing] will not interrupt the safe, humane, legal care and custody provided to the detainee population at GTMO.”Admiral Craig Faller
