It's Time to Close Guantanamo

As a veteran, I see the US military prison at Guantanamo as a horror and a shame on all of us. This powerfully evil leftover from the dark, dismal days of George Bush should be closed immediately. On the very first day that President Obama took office the first time he signed an executive order to begin the process to close Gitmo, but it is still open. And with a large-scale hunger strike underway by prisoners for several weeks now, conditions there are rapidly deteriorating for both the prisoners and the US staff.

Guantanamo, Gitmo, military prison, war on terrorism

President Obama has now explicitly recommitted to closing Gitmo, but it won't happen unless we all loudly hold him and Congress responsible for this. It's time to do more than talk! Tell the President and Congress that you want Guantanamo to be closed, NOW -->
