The U.S. military said it has been receiving online hacking threats amid the hunger strike, which were allegedly from Anonymous.

It is ran by the U.S. military, and was established in 2002 by the Bush Administration to hold those connected with the Global War on Terror including Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and Southeast Asia.
