"changing the Zip Code of Guantánamo"

| | TrackBacks (0)

The reason why it was so important to close Guantánamo in the first place was to bring to an end the ruinous and unjust policy of indefinite detention without charge or trial, and it amazes me that President Obama has, apparently, fooled himself into thinking that a sleight of hand that perpetuates the same policy as that established by George W. Bush will be any more acceptable when he is its architect, or that a change of scenery -- from Guantánamo Bay to Thomson, Illinois -- can help to accomplish such a brazen betrayal of the fundamental values on which the United States was founded. - Andy Worthington
