I Believe Guantanamo Should Be Closed For Good

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 94 People

    The prison at Guantanamo (Gitmo) is a national

    embarrassment. The US holds itself up as an example of human rights. President Obama know this and has made a number of mentions to close it. The men still held there after a decade have been investigated and either tried or are being held because their own countries don't...

    Thank Goodness For Obama

      I can't tell you how sweet it was to watch the live coverage of Obama signing the executive order to close Gitmo on his first day. They have a year to close it, but it really should only take a few months, according to the terrorist organization known as the ACLU...

    I Thought Everyone Did

    Where Wll the Prisoners Go?

    So, Obama decided the illegal jails get closed. But nobody seems to want to have alledged terrorists in their back yards. Except for the Dutch prime minsiter, who offered Obama to take a handful to the same prison as the UN detention unit is. That's all very nice, but the...

    It Has Outserved Its Original Purpose

    Someday soon probably they will turn it into a tourist attraction where we can "ooh" and "ahhh" over the blood and gore and horrible things that happened there. So goes our fascination with the morbid like visiting Auschwitz or Alcatraz.
