from Witness Against Torture
Witness Against Torture returned to Washington, D.C. to mark the 11th anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Prison Camp. For 4 years, President Obama has claimed to want to close Guantanamo. As recently as Oct. 2012 in an interview with Jon Stewart, he claimed he wanted to close the facility but was stymied by Congress. Guantanamo is now an ugly part of the President’s legacy. Nine men have died in the camp since its inception, most recently Adnan Latif. Mr. Latif had been cleared for release on no fewer than 3 occasions before his death in September.
