Guantanamo: Let The Dying Begin!

I’ve been detained at Guantánamo for 11 years and three months. I have never been charged with any crime. I have never received a trial.   -Samir Naji al Hasan Moobel

Wasn't this nation expressly conceived and created to permanently abolish the very possibility of such living nightmares?

Over half the people there have been cleared for release. They have committed no crime, done no wrong- they know it, we know it. And yet we continue to imprison them in a living hell: without the slightest modicum of justice, without the slightest opportunity for hope. 

Basically, they have been told that we have committed such an egregious and fundamental error that admitting to it, even acknowledging it, would be such a monumental admission of guilt, that we simply could not endure the consequences of such embarrassment. Therefore, it was decided that it was in our best interest that they technically do not exist and should just die, quietly and well out of sight. All that we ask of them is that they do not do anything to draw attention to themselves.

Obama- this is on you...
