I would have thought the bone is being thrown to governments overseas more than the left in the US. Several of which, including my own Prime Minister have sent official complaints, which is actually highly unusual these days. But seeing as there are currently three or four British citizens in their without charge hardly surprising.He will close it. In the greater picture, it is a bone he needs to throw to satisfy the extreme left.
Your not supporting false imprisonment but you advocate in the same sentence that even the innocent man is a terrorist by the mere fact that he's in there. If that's the case then why were there no charges, no trial? By releasing him without any further investigation the american military are admitting that there was in fact no reason for him to be there other than false imprisonment.yep. even him!!! honestly. i haven't read every article out on gitmo. but i fail to see how detaining terrorists is a bad thing... for any country. I'm not supporting the false imprissonment of anyone from any country. I'm just saying that there's a reason.
So if I suspect you are a terrorist that must be then born out of truth?Suspicion is usually bread out of truth.
Aka you can torture them. Which is what the US does with it's alliance with Egypt anyway.So close it. No big deal. It's better for the CIA and military because they can extract informations better from suspects on foreign soils anyway.
Really they inmates should be all coming to Republican houses, after all it's the right of america that believes Gitmo should stay open for business.How about they share room with Obama supporters. Up for it Nedro? Are you ready for change?
Why? Because it was out in the open and everybody was able to look at it?Aka you can torture them. Which is what the US does with it's alliance with Egypt anyway. It's interesting that you feel Gitmo is no big deal. For many countries Gitmo has been the symbol of american arrogance. By placing itself above international law your government has made a mockery of the very freedoms it claims to promote.
No. Because it breaks International Law. Because it breaks the Geneva convention. Because in eight or so years only one person has been brought to trial. Because its outside the US constitution, allowing detainees to be tortured off american soil and also therefore by-passes any american law.Why? Because it was out in the open and everybody was able to look at it?
Actually the UKs complicity in allowing US transporters planes to fly over UK soil taking Guantanamo detainees to egypt to be tortured was widely reported in the UK media. Its how we know the US was taking prisoners to be tortured in the first place.What about the British? Do you think they are not involved in torture? The only difference is that it wasn't reported where, when and who in the Sun or any other paper.
I think its you who are naive. Our government are running around doing what the hell they want in the name of protection. This is the prime reason given for Guantanamo. To protect you. It undeniable that some of the people in there are extremely dangerous. Fine give them a trial and sentence them. But its also undeniable that some are entirely innocent.Come on already. Don't be naive.
But holding people indefinitely without trial because of suspicion is not a good thing - certainly not for a country that pretends to be the leading light of the "free world".Suspicion is usually bread out of truth.
Because most people in charge of civilised countries realise its immoral.I cant understand why more prisons aren't like Guantanamo Bay?
