For years, before the advent of drone wars, Guantanamo was probably the top recruiting tool for anti-U.S. terrorist groups. To this day, Guantanamo is a valuable message for such recruitment. ISIS puts its victims in orange jumpsuits for a reason.
President Obama just lectured Cuba about human rights, while his subordinates force-fed prisoners in a U.S. base on Cuba, prisoners charged with no crimes and in many cases long since cleared for release, prisoners attempting to leave their cages in this U.S. camp of horrors by the only means available: suicide.
To its great shame, the U.S. government has unjustly imprisoned, tortured, engaged in human experimentation1, and murdered2 at Guantanamo. In a world of equality before the law, there would be prosecutions for these crimes. In this world, the most important step toward justice that lies within our immediate reach is to insist on closing and ending the entire operation.
