Yes, you learn something new everyday and I learned a little bit about GITMO from that fine film where Captain Jack has his famous meltdown on the stand and blurts out "the truth" that leaves Tom Cruz shocked and speechless until he regains composure and gets back to his niggling question.
But some people are incapable of learning. They don't want to learn and it's not because they "can't handle the truth" - It's because they know a larger truth and cling to it. The larger truth overrules the smaller truth and, really, makes the smaller truth a lie (false consciousness as they say) and thereby justifies the denial of the smaller truth.
"The blueprint offered few specifics, refraining from mentioning any of the potential replacement facilities the Pentagon had visited in preparing it, including military prisons in Leavenworth, Kan., and Charleston, S.C., as well as several civilian prisons in Colorado."There is no plan to "close GITMO" as is often reported on the news, but rather a plan to move the detention facility on to American soil and, in essence, build a bunch more "GITMOs" right here in the USA. Great idea Barack - bring it on home. Every State could have their very own facility for indefinite detention of "enemy combatants" who could be captures and held without due process as long as the military deemed necessary. What could go wrong?
