“My words will not do justice to what I lived through in these years and to the men I leave behind in prison,” al Darbi said in a statement to The New York Times provided through his volunteer lawyer. “No one should remain at Guantánamo without a trial. There is no justice in that.” – Mohammed Ahmed Haza al Darbi, heading home to a prison in Saudi Arabia
Home is where your cell is
Mohammed Ahmed Haza al Darbi is the first Gitmo detainee to be transferred out of the facility, heading home to Saudi Arabia and the super understanding KSA penal system. Which is an interesting turn of events, given that Trump was going to fill the place up with all the bad guys.
Wonder if Mueller knows there’s a vacancy
Guantanamo Bay used to be synonymous with a time when Demi Moore was still relevant and Tom Cruise wasn’t banking his career on people believing that a man in his 50s could do his own stunts.
Then came the planes, the extraordinary renditions, and the orange jumpsuits.
Trump, who likes things orange, wants to keep the place open, while others in the administration are inclined to getting folks out of the place. Since it seems to be inspiring things like burning people alive in cages.
Maybe Trump’s got plans in case this Mueller thing goes poorly and some of the president’s former staff will need new digs?
Close it and burn it to the ground
Or at least keep it open as a museum. A testament to another in a long line of dark ages in American history where “security” trumped “freedom”.
I just said “trumped” and it wasn’t ironic.
Seriously, though, shut it down already.
