Complete jurisdiction and control

"The United States shall exercise complete jurisdiction and control" over Guantanamo
Does this mean that the US can do anything it wants? Ignore the Bill of Rights? Violate international law? Violate the lease whose terms it stands on? I don't think so.

Plus, there are crimes with universal jurisdiction.

well, more generally, it appears the U.S. can actually do pretty much whatever it wants.
