Diego Garcia: the paradise island with a shameful secret

A tiny speck in the vast Indian Ocean, Diego Garcia is an island in the Chagos Archipelago that's home to one of the most secretive and controversial US military bases in the world. Established in the early 1970s after the forced expulsion from the island of its native inhabitants by the British and American governments, the US Navy Support Facility functions as the last link in a long logistics chain supporting vital US and British naval presence in the region. But its remote location has led conspiracy theorists to suggest Diego Garcia serves a more sinister role as a CIA black site. And some even believe the island was involved in the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. Meanwhile, the indigenous Chagossians continue their fight for repatriation to their ancestral homeland. So, how did this idyllic coral atoll become such a point of contention? Click through and learn more about the trouble in paradise.
