I seem to recall a certain candidate Obama way back when saying something about shutting down the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay. Of course, that never happened. Nice thought, though. In some ways, does it really matter? Isn't what is important the way people are just sort of picked up and stuck there...and tortured...and made dead there? The truth is "we" could do that just fine in the prisons we have right here in the states. Ask the prisoners who live here about that. The truth is the line between what happens at Guantanamo and what happens in many "regular" prisons is very murky, at best.
Anyway, again, it is what is going on at Guantanamo that is more troubling then where it happens to be located as the post below from the World Socialist Web Site makes abundantly clear.
The death of Adnan Farhan Abdul Latif

They are artists of pain and fatigue,
They are artists of insults and humiliation.
Where is the world to save us from torture?
Where is the world to save us from the fire and sadness?
Where is the world to save the hunger strikers?
