If another nation ran Gitmo

If another nation ran the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay…

and if U.S. citizens were captured and thrown into that prison…

and if those citizens were arbitrarily designated “enemy combatants” to circumvent the Geneva Conventions…

and if those citizens were being held without being charged and for an indeterminate period of time…

I suspect the U.S., not to mention the rest of the world, would have long ago taken whatever steps were necessary to shut down that prison, try or release the prisoners, and severely censure the nation that operated the facility.

I am ashamed that my country has become arrogant enough and cruel enough to run places like Gitmo.
