Shut Down Gitmo! Just, um, because it's BAD!

| | Comments (0)
I need a bumper sticker saying, "Gitmo don't torture terrorists, guards do."

Seriously ... why shut down a facility EVEN IF systematic torture is happening there? Then you need to pay a ton more taxpayer money to get a new facility, and for what? If you have not changed the (supposed) torture policy, or gotten rid of the perpetrators, then nothing has substantially changed. And if you do, then there's no reason to shut it down.

And that's assuming there actually is systematic torture going on, which is something no one's come close to actually showing, but just for the sake of argument assming there is: it's still a stupid idea.
