The fact that the US keeps open a place where human rights do not exist is despicable in itself. There is no valid excuse for it; Obama said before, years before, he intended to close it, and yet he didn't. Guantanamo makes the country no better than other countries with no human rights, really. It might not be in the US, but it is under the control of the US, and turning a blind eye is no better. It's like the saying, "The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The next best time is now." Closing this crap place is way overdue; the only way to start making it better is to close it down, and make sure no other places like it ever open again.
