The Naval Consolidated Brig (NAVCONBRIG CHASN), is a medium security U.S. military prison. It is located on the south annex of Naval Weapons Station Charleston in Berkeley County, South Carolina, north of Charleston.
The brig recently housed several enemy combatants, including Yasser Hamdi, José Padilla and Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri. Al-Marri remains at the Brig as of August 2008.
In October 2008 91 pages of memos drafted in 2002 by officer at the Brig became public. The memos indicate that officers were concerned that the isolation and lack of stimuli were driving Hamdi, Padilla and Al-Marri insane.
