GITMO -- The Reminder

Eight years ago (a few days ago) GITMO opened. Seven hundred men were put there and caged like dogs. The "worst of the worst" that were so dangerous that giving them a trial and treating them like humans was "too dangerous."

One-hundred ninety-eight remain.

Some were murdered through torture, the vast majority released and repatriated. A few of those released, deemed to be non-terrorists, were radicalized and turned to terrorism.

The only thing accomplished through GITMO, so far, has been to create terrorists, recruit for Al Qaeda, remove some bit-players from the scenes and otherwise serving as a bright, shining beacon the rampant, horrid moral-hypocrisy of the United States.

A futile, stupid waste.
