    UN to US: Shut down Gitmo

    Stardate 5328.2


    American authorities should release all prisoners in the US detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, or try them in a court and shut down the prison, the United Nations said in a report released Thursday.

    Of course, the US will not comply. They cite intelligence reports and the fact that the UN representatives will not go and visit Gitmo for reasons. The UN will not visit the Gulag because the US has refused access to private interviews with detainees.

    Who else has refused to comply with the UN before? Hmmm.

    *** UPDATE ***

    Well who would have ever guessed? The US is rejecting the call to offer a fair trial to the detainees and shut down the prison. In the words of everyone's favorite White House spokesman Scott McClellan...

    "These are dangerous terrorists that we're talking about that are there."

    He seems to have forgotten that they are "suspected terrorists" and that if they are in fact actually dangerous terrorists, then they can go to trial and be charged and justly be incarcerated. This is bloody ridiculous.
