We are a country of laws, not prejudices. There should be no extrajudicial detention and prison.

We should not be torturing innocent people, besides waterboarding is torture. The United States government is in violation of international law.

It's morally wrong and against our constitution to bring people to jail without a trial, I don't care that W. moved them to GITMO to get around this. Then there's the torture of innocent people- everything against what this country stand for. Let alone the bounty on on turning in any person that looked like they could possibly be an AlQuaida member- dark skin, dark hair, and possibly wearing a turban. I unfortunately admit I voted for him, and I got it wrong. Then I voted for Obama, againgetting wrong b/c he lies about closing the facility in his first year. Yet here we are 5 years later. They claim no countries will take them here, so give them citizenship here, they were innocent to begin with.

Shut it down, the president has been saying he will for the almost 10 years of his presidency, this is an abomination.

Because it is morally wrong, it is illegal detention without due process, it has been nothing but political and has nothing to due with prisoners of war

I voted for Obama in 2008 because he promised to close Gitmo. It is now April, 2014 and I am still waiting for him to fulfill his promise.
