UN's Top Human Rights Official, Calls For Guantanamo Closing In Wake Of Hunger Strikes

04/05/13 02:56 PM ET EDT

GENEVA -- The United Nations' top human rights official pressed the U.S. on Friday to close the Guantanamo Bay prison, strongly criticizing the indefinite detention of inmates at the facility.

President Barack Obama pledged to shutter the prison soon after taking office, but the Republican Congress opposed it, passing a law that prohibits the government from transferring Guantanamo prisoners to U.S. soil and requiring security guarantees before they can be sent elsewhere.

Navi Pillay, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, said she is "deeply disappointed" Washington hasn't closed the facility. She urged all branches of the government to work together to shut it.

Pillay, who has long urged Guantanamo's closure, said in a statement that "the continuing indefinite incarceration of many of the detainees amounts to arbitrary detention and is in clear breach of international law."

She welcomed a recent White House statement that the Obama administration remains committed to closing the facility.

"Nevertheless, this systemic abuse of individuals' human rights continues year after year," Pillay said. "We must be clear about this: the United States is in clear breach not just of its own commitments, but also of international laws and standards that it is obliged to uphold. When other countries breach these standards, the U.S. – quite rightly – strongly criticizes them for it."

Pillay said of a hunger strike currently being staged by detainees that "given the uncertainty and anxieties surrounding their prolonged and apparently indefinite detention in Guantanamo, it is scarcely surprising that people's frustrations boil over and they resort to such desperate measures."

Well here is what the Great One has done.....and yet we still hear oh they are different, sure fella keep telling yourself this hui is not a bunch of reprobates just like the last one.

March 7, 2011​: President Obama signs another executive order, this one focussed on creating a review process for detainees. The goal is to "establish, as a discretionary matter, a process to review on a periodic basis the executive branch's continued, discretionary exercise of existing detention authority in individual cases." In the same breath, he re-institutes military tribunals for detainees.

April 23, 2011: The plan to prosecute September 11th mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed in federal court falls apart, with Attorney General Eric Holder informing the president that KSM would be returned to Guantánamo Bay for trial. A report in The Washington Post claims this move will "mark the effective abandonment of the president's promise to close the military detention center."

Septemberg 29, 2012: The last westerner held at Guantánamo, Omar Khadr, is sent back to Canada after serving eight years for murder in violation of the law of war and other charges.

January 28, 2013: The State Department shuts down the office of the envoy for closing the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

How about this;

"People who were tortured by the prosecution aren't prosecutable, the case would be thrown out, and they'd walk."

We're just as proud of our level of education as you are of your level of ignorance.

You just don't have to work as hard at it as we do.

HR 645: Congress Seeks to Authorize & Legalize FEMA Camps
Submitted by RJ on Tue, 01/27/2009 - 19:05
Daily Paul Liberty Forum

A new bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives called the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645. This bill, if passed into law, will direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers otherwise known as FEMA camp facilities on military installations. This is an incredibly disturbing piece of legislation considering that the powers that be have already set in motion an agenda to setup a nationwide martial law apparatus through U.S. Northern Command and the Department of Homeland Security.

Apparently, the fusion centers, militarized police, surveillance cameras and a domestic military command is not enough. Even though we know that detention facilities are already in place, they now want to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency. With the phony debt based economy getting worse and worse by the day, the possibility of civil unrest is becoming a greater threat to the establishment. One need only look at Iceland, Greece and other nations for what might happen in the United States next.

With this in mind, it appears as if these so called national emergency centers will be used in a national emergency but only if the national emergency requires large groups of people to be rounded up and detained. If that isn’t the case, than why have these national emergency facilities built in military installations?

Let’s look through the various portions of the bill.

its all in this bill, HR 645 mono. How dumb is that?

I read it, idiot. Preference is for already closed military sites for natural disaster preparedness. Jeebus, yer gullible.


I post Beck because you have posted Beck before and not even Beck believes that crap. Thought you might relate to someone you feel is a credible source and hates Obummer as much as you do.

Let's see if you can fix your Rogue Government link above. I doubt it.

You know that college degree thing doesn't mean what it did once, except in highly specialized fields like engineering and medicine. We’re now in the era when you have to have a BA to check in rental cars. And your graph clearly shows that somewhere between 3/4 and 2/3 of 25 year olds do not have a degree. Are they all to be stigmatized as stupid? Maybe they’re the smart ones for figuring out that they might be better off not starting out their adult lives with 6 figures of college debt and a job at Starbucks. Meanwhile our politicians continue to claim that everyone should be able to get a college education, with no understanding of misaligned goals and abilities. I have a lot of friends who are masters at things like welding, making bearings work, carving stone, the list goes on. Most of these people are successful, live life on their own terms and do not have a college degree.
