Bush to Keep Guantanamo Open

like this surprised anyone. The sad part is that Guantanamo Bay Prison will be Bush’s defining moment in history. It will be what he will be remembered for the most. For introducing torture to America. For attempting to subvert and avoid law and to keep people in prison for the rest of their lives before they even are charged with anything. The Soviet Union under Stalin is remembered more for its gulags than anything else. It’s what stands out. It is what defines Stalin.

Guantanamo Bay Prison will be Bush’s defining moment. And now, with a chance to save some portion of his legacy, he swings and whiffs. Like that surprises anyone.
