It's believed there's less than 20 so-called "high-value" detainees left in Guantanamo. These include the alleged mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and Abu Zubaydah, an alleged former trainer at Al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan.

Why do the Guantanamo detainees like "Fifty Shades Of Grey"?

"Rather than the Quran, the book that is requested most by the [high-value detainees] is 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. They've read the entire series in English, but we were willing to translate it," said Rep. Jim Moran.

"I guess there's not much going on, these guys are going nowhere, so what the hell."

Other stuff Guantanamo detainees like:

"If erotic passages are meant to induce an almost combination of disbelief, cringing and inadvertent hilarity then, by all means, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' is the most erotic novel ever written."

"Fifty Shades Of Grey" to blame for increased handcuff mishaps?

"I don't know whether it's the Fifty Shades effect, but the number of incidents involving items like handcuffs seems to have gone up."

London firefighters say they have freed hundreds of people with body parts trapped in household objects in the last three years, including 18 children with heads stuck in potties or toilet seats and 79 people trapped in handcuffs.
