It is now President Obama's second term, and we demand that he finally meet his unfulfilled promise to close the internment camp at Guantánamo by releasing the men he will not charge and giving fair trials to those he will. President Obama's own administration has cleared more than half of the detained men for release, yet Guantánamo is unacceptably entering its twelfth year of operation. Moreover, the Obama administration has not only failed to exercise the leadership required to close Guantánamo, but it has also extended some of the worst aspects of the Guantánamo system by continuing indefinite detentions without charge or trial, employing illegitimate military commissions to try some suspects, and blocking accountability for torture. If President Obama continues to waver in his promise to shut down Guantánamo, his legacy will be marred forever.
It is past time to shut down Guantánamo. It is urgent. It is ethically and legally necessary.
Guantánamo must be shut down, and we must put an end to indefinite detention without charge or trial. Do your part to advocate to close Guantánamo from wherever you are.
