    I Thought Everyone Did

    apparently not. Ive been on a few protests against Guantanamo. You get more abuse than anything, people saying you want to release terrorists, that you are a terrorist, **** like that....   at the start of this year there was over 700 people in Guantanamo. Not one of them...

    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...

    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...

    So, Torture Is Illegal, Right?

    Guantanamo is a disturbing product of a justice system gone wrong... Here's a bill set out to correct that: 110th Congress - S. 1469: Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility Closure Act of 2007 S. 1469 introduced in the Senate by Sen Harkin, Tom on May 23, 2007 To require...

    I believe everything happens for a reason but what is that reason? Why do some suffer while others prosper? Did I do something horrible? Is that why I'm being punished?
