Trump and his credulous followers whine about the imagined cost that asylum-seekers pose to the US. But NOW he wants to ship them to Guantanamo where the US will have to feed and care for them and ship them BACK to the US when their claims are processed.

Reminder.

They are legal asylum seekers not criminals.

HRF Natl Security on Twitter: "Detention at #Guantanamo should be ended- not expanded to hold asylum seekers coming to the southern border. Here's a letter from former military leaders on why detention at Guantanamo needs to end. https://t.co/355feGOz8a" https://twitter.com/HRFNatlSecurity/status/1126491763848437760 ... show more

Commander of Guantánamo prison fired at last

"Commander, U.S. Southern Command, U.S. Navy Adm. Craig Faller, relieved U.S. Navy Rear Adm. John Ring, commander, Joint Task Force - Guantanamo, April 27, due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command," said a statement from Col. Amanda Azubuike, the spokesman for U.S. Southern Command.
Are we one step closer to this detention facility's complete closure, or are they simply going to elect another one to replace him?
"U.S. Army Brig. Gen. John Hussey, JTF-GTMO’s deputy commander, has been designated the acting commander," Azubuike said in the statement. “This change in leadership will not interrupt the safe, humane, legal care and custody provided to the detainee population at GTMO."
Were they serious about the second sentence uttered? Because if they intent to joke, it's not funny.

Guantanamo Kid


Mohammed El-Gharani was no more than 14 years old when he left his native country, Saudi Arabia, in order to study English in Pakistan.

Shortly after 9/11, he was detained during a raid on his local mosque and taken into the custody of the US army. He was flown first to Kandahar and then to Guantánamo Bay, where he was held and abused for seven years without charge or trial. El-Gharani was one of the youngest prisoners at the camp, and one of the few detainees of African descent.

The journalist and researcher Jérôme Tubiana first told El-Gharani’s story in a Diary piece for the London Review of Books in 2011. In Guantánamo Kid, a collaboration with the comics artist Alexandre Franc, he translates this shocking and important story into graphic novel form.

Erinnert ihr euch, welche Rolle Hans-Georg #Maaßen nach der Entführung des Bremers Murat #Kurnaz aus Pakistan nach #Guantanamo Bay gespielt hat?

Nein?

Maaßen hat die (perverse) juristische Munition für die Regierung Schröder geliefert um Murat #Kurnaz nach erlittener Folter in der Internierungshaft in #Guantanamo versauern zu lassen. Eigentlich hatte die #US Regierung ihn schon 2002 freilassen und nach Deutschland ausweisen wollen. Die rot-grüne Regierung zögerte die Rückkehr nach Deutschland noch um 4 Jahre hinaus. Die Begründung hierfür war, dass er die Frist für den Antrag auf Verlängerung seines Aufenthalts verpasst(!) gehabt hätte. (sic!)
