If I remember correctly, Obama promised that if elected the first thing he would do was close down the detention center at Guantanamo. I don't think that has happened. Maybe he will promise if re-elected he will figure out how to get that taken care of in his second term.
I wouldn't hold my breath.
Talking about the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay has sort of gone out of style. It should be brought right back in style.
Now, sure, we all know and have heard it a million times, there are some really bad guys there. That is probably true, but you know what there are some not really bad guys who get stuck there, too.
One of those not really bad guys is a fellow named Moazzam Begg. He is out talking about his experiences there. Not only that but he is pointing to all the other rendition issues, all the other torture, all the other stuff being carried on in your name by some really bad guys.
When Moazzam talks, you should listen.
