The U.S. military now has more than 800 juvenile detainees in custody, most of whom were captured during this year's American troop 'surge' in Baghdad. They attend six classes - Arabic, Science, Math, History, Civics and English every three days. Many of the detainees, ages 12-17 years old, have been captured while planting roadside bombs or IEDs targeting U.S. forces, according to military officials. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
