Debra Sweet commented on the blog post Guantanamo Prisoners on Hunger Strike Against New Guard Force for Confiscating Personal Items
It’s hard to imagine that any of the prisoners could have hope to get out, now four years after Obama promised GTMO would be closed. They are not in a prison where once a term is served, they will be released, but in an unending, unjust possible life sentence, as Kevin describes.
The reality is that there are no more “legal” routes to follow; the US federal courts have effectively closed off all avenues for appeal. The alarming treatment of the prisoners who are left, and of their lawyers, has to be protested and exposed. Thanks for doing that, Kevin.
