WASHINGTON — The man charged with supervising the operation of military commissions at Guantanamo Bay was previously featured on a Fox reality show where celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay criticized his poor management of a now-foreclosed hotel.
At Guantanamo, John Imhof is the officer in charge of the Office of Military Commissions, the Pentagon entity that runs the military tribunal there. In this role, Imhof helps oversee a wide range of operations — including lodging and travel for prosecution and defense lawyers — and works as a liaison between the Office of Military Commissions and Joint Task Force Guantanamo, which runs the base’s prison facilities.
Before Imhof went to Guantanamo, he and his wife were featured on an Aug. 20, 2012 episode of “Hotel Hell,” a Fox reality show about struggling and mismanaged lodgings. Imhof bought the Cambridge Hotel in upstate New York in 2007.
