Camp Eggers is a United States military base in Kabul, Afghanistan. Located near the US Embassy and the Afghan Presidential Palace. The camp was named Sunday, March 20 after Capt. Daniel W. Eggers.
Camp Eggers is used by all U.S. military branches as well as other coalition partners (including Australian Army, Canadian Army, New Zealand, Romania, and Germany). Continues to train the Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police and are assisting with provincial reconstruction projects such as school reconstruction and road repair.
Sources reported that a government entity, suspected to be the CIA, used the facility for extrajudicial detention of suspected terrorists.
While its status as a former detention facility is disputed, Camp Eggers is in one of the busiest parts of the city and the route to Kabul International takes roughly twenty minutes through city traffic.
