Embracing 'Lawlessness' of Guantanamo, Trump Calls for Expanding Offshore Prison

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

President Donald Trump on Tuesday doubled down on his embrace of the offshore prison at Guantánamo Bay by signing an executive order to not only keep it open but to possibly imprison more people there in the never-ending, ever-expanding war on terror.

From the article:

“…both the Bush and Obama administrations’ (recognized) that the prison should be closed for moral, national security, and diplomatic reasons.”

And yet, after 16 years, it remains open. Presidents # 43 and 44 must have had other priorities.

Soooo true!

In this era of Trump, the White House needs to be changed to: THE WHITE, SUPREMACIST’S HOUSE!

Guantanamo is the real and symbolic manifestation of a country that now practices unadulterated fascism…

Keeping people imprisoned without a formal charge and possibly adding more in the same fashion is certainly tragic. If they are indeed “bad dudes,” fine; but if they are innocent of any offense such action is wrong. Mr. Trump should carefully review each case personally, lest the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock be moved yet a bit more closely to midnight.
