With all the news about closing Guantonamo, I thought this might be topical. I don’t know how I feel personally. At this point, it seems like an empty gesture… Most of the detainees are going to be relocated to another prison facility where they will continue to be held indefinitely without trial. It’s a messy situation. I don’t believe the ends justify the means. I’m sure some innocent people got swept up post 9/11. People will say anything under duress. At heart, I am an idealist and what the previous administration did is definitely wrong. But, I don’t necessarily want suspected terrorists released into my neighborhood because they were tortured or improperly held. They might just be guilty.

Here are some shots of AVAAZ’s recent campaign against torture in the DC subways.
