Gitmo to Close!

Last month, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that he had ordered aides to draw up plans for closing down the prison camp at Guantánamo Bay. Days after the election, the ACLU called on President-elect Obama to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay and shut down the military commissions on his first day in the White House.

You may have heard the news this week that five high-profile detainees attempted to submit guilty pleas before the government’s ill-conceived military commissions at Guantánamo Bay. But, by the end of the day, their pleas were tied up in a blizzard of confusion over unresolved legal questions.

What’s happening at Guantánamo flies in the face of justice, fairness and our American ideals. Please take a moment to tell President-elect Obama to close the prison at Guantánamo.

I read some articles how human rights being violated in that prison. I think some of the detainees who wish to change are pressured to rebellion.

@raphnix-It violates several articles in the Geneva Convention. GWB and his minions should be punished as war criminals.
