An ex-Guantanamo Bay guard has told Press TV that the United States must stop holding prisoners without charge or trial. Christopher Arendt is in the UK to meet ex-Guantanamo Bay inmates. He told Roshan Muhammed Salih that Barack Obama must close down all the US's secret detention centres all over the world.
Guantanamo Bay is a detainment facility of the United States located in Cuba. The facility is operated by Joint Task Force Guantánamo of the United States government since 2002 in Guantánamo Bay Naval Base, which is on the shore of Guantánamo Bay.
The detainment areas consist of three camps: Camp Delta, Camp Iguana, and Camp X-Ray, the last of which has been closed. The facility is often referred to as Guantánamo, or Gitmo.After the Justice Department advised that the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp could be considered outside U.S. legal jurisdiction, prisoners captured in Afghanistan were moved there beginning in early 2002. After the Bush administration asserted that detainees were not entitled to any of the protections of the Geneva Conventions, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld on June 29, 2006 that they were entitled to the minimal protections listed under Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions.
Obama said he was going to end the war and close Guantanamo. YES WE CAN! The reason he doesn't is because the Government -both red and blue- works for the same elite interest.
