Camp Iguana was a low-security detention center for juvenile detainees aged 13 to 15, which was converted in 2004 to a low-security center to house detainees no longer classified as illegal enemy combatants, but who cannot return to their homelands due to concerns for their safety.

Short of that, the brutal conditions at Camp X-Ray may assist the U.S. intelligence officers to extract information on Al Qaeda networks in Indonesia, the Philippines and the rest of the oil lands, in order to enable the U.S.' ongoing operations in the area.
