Free The Guantanamo Bay Prisoners

Andrew Worthington, Author

Opponents of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center argued for closure of the facility. They refer to the impact of the prison on U.S. credibility, the number of trials held in the 11 years that the prison has been open, bills passed by Congress that prevent the release of prisoners, and the legitimacy of military commissions. President Obama is criticized for failing to close the facility and for not vetoing a 2012 defense bill that barred the transfer of detainees.

The program contains language that some may find objectionable.
