Every time I get ready to start screaming about how much of a disappointment Obama has been, I remember what he’s up against! No excuses for him, though. Howard Zinn kind of hinted at Obama’s mediocrity sometime before his death!

If President Obama wanted Guantanamo closed down it would have closed down already!! Why is he still keeping it open I wonder?
I sort of watched the video with one eye, reminds me of awful experiments or something sick.

Repeating from above > I strongly urge anyone who has a chance to see a screening of the FILM "DOCTORS OF THE DARKSIDE" should see it. Watch the Trailer here (if you can take it...)

"The existence of Guantánamo is a national embarrassment, but erecting new barriers against news reporting will only make matters worse. As long as the prison exists, maximum transparency should be the operative rule."

For those out there with doubts on their minds I strongly urge them to listen to Debra Sweet's words in the first video! You may learn something and rethink your own thoughts on the US and all its issues.
As for the fundraiser-please check the updates tab on the Indiee gogo site- there is a current match offer if you can donate anything.
“The language that they use here at Guantánamo reflects how they treat us prisoners. Just the other day, they referred to me as a “package” when they moved me from my cell. This is nothing new. I have been a package for 12 years now. I am a package when en route to Camp Echo, the solitary confinement wing. I am a package en route to a legal call. ‘The package has been picked up … the package has been delivered.’”

Thanks Angie, but I have to say it again....... those poor poor innocent men, they're being totally degraded and treated so abominably, it's so sickening. Why doesn't OBAMA FREE THESE INNOCENT MEN NOW I wonder?
SHAME ON OBAMA FOR NOT DOING SO, I HOPE HE READS THIS!
