Gitmo's Living Legacy in the Trump Era


Gitmo's Living Legacy in the Trump Era

Karen Greenberg

Will Washington never learn?

Activists outside the U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 11, 2017 marking the 15th anniversary of the Guantanamo Bay prison.


The title of this article should be focused on the Magna Carta and due process, since Gitmo is just one of many side effects of the application of the “enemy combatant” label.

Consistent with POTUS during the past three plus decades applying Goebbels’ play book, Dick Cheney and his puppet Dubya applied the “enemy combatant” label not just to deal with alleged terrorists but to remove the rights of every Murkin to due process.

With the “enemy combatant” label now enshrined in Murkin law, culture and psyche, Trump and any other fascist occupying the White House has a green light to deny us due process and our other constitutional rights.


In a nation that likes blood and gore movies why should torture bother them.
Lock em up and let the prisoners rape them, that is humanitarianism american style.
Let’s go kill a few million to make them free? Is American humanitarianism.
Cannot find a job, the military pays better than 40+% of working family’s earn, all you have to do is kill someone; American humanitarianism.
Oh you do not kill someone you just hand them the tools they need, American humanitarianism
