UN Calls for Guantanamo Bay to be closed or detainees charged and tried in open court.
It's about damn time. You can't be a country that calls for expanding freedom and democracy overseas, and have what amounts to a political prison on your own territory. Hopefully this'll help to bring some international pressure to bear.
It's funny. Guantanamo Bay is in Cuba, which is theoretically our enemy because it's a politically repressive regime. And Guantanamo bay is American territory. And right there, on American soil, separated from Cuba by nothing more than a fence, there's political repression and torture happening. The hypocrisy couldn't be more stark.
