What the Paintings by Its Prisoners Tell Us About Our Humanity and Theirs

The only thing Trump has been correct on is keeping Guantanamo open.

Every empty cell in Guantanamo needs to be occupied by a crooked DC politician as soon as they are brought to justice, with the key to the cell Trump is assigned being tossed into the sea.


Another of the ongoing nightmares brought about as a consequence of the US pre-emptive attack on Iraq.

Imagine what horrors will be released if the US goes to war with North Korea.


Thank you Erin for this opportunity to see the pain and agony that these inmates express. I don’t know why Obama failed to close Guantanamo, but it is one of the main reasons I consider him a failed president. I truly hope that I will live long enough to see those poor, tortured souls freed.


They don’t hate us because of our freedoms, they hate us for our behavior.
