  • I came to this website looking for valid arguments and must look elsewhere.

    As a naval facility, it is a continued presence in the Caribbean. As a prison it is not much different from any other detention facility. As a bastion of American capitalism in a foreign land, it is an excellent opportunity for Cuba to take advantage of the influx of American dollars to support its economy which the Cuban government continues to avoid.

  • Keep it open!

  • Keep it open

    In 2002, the Guantanamo Bay detention camp was opened to detain extraordinarily dangerous criminals who committed war crimes and terrorists attacks. 779 detainees have been brought to the Guantanamo Bay prison and 80 still reside there. It will reduce the terrorist attacks on the world. This is the time we take our world back. THe guantanamo bay prison shall remain open because it will reduce terrorist attacks as well as integration because it allows the inmates to speak there mind on why they did what they did or were going to do.
    Keeping Guantanamo Bay open there would be less terrorist attacks in this world. Some people may argue that by closing Guantanamo Bay prison there would be less threats in this world. The Washington Post states that , “considered, the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has played an invaluable role in the war against terrorists by keeping them off the battlefield and allowing for lawful interrogations.” However, people need to keep in mind on how those criminals are being mistreated but if we the people, we americans. Let them out we would be in more danger, Americans need to stick together and become one.
    A possible concern is too close the prison as well as having the Congress should make an outlaw by using CIA prisons and ban the practice of indefinite detention without trial. The media should recognize once and for all that torture is not a matter of serious debate: It is a war crime and terrorist attacks. For example:”Obama’s proposal to shutter the facility, announced last week, is a timely reminder of the grave issues at stake in 2016. Guantanamo is a monument to the worst abuses the George W. Bush administration committed in the name of safety and the “war on terror.” Its continued existence beyond the boundaries of the law makes a mockery of American values and weakens our standing in the world. “This is about closing a chapter in our history,” Obama said. “It reflects the lessons that we’ve learned since 9/11 — lessons that need to guide our nation moving forward.”President Obama is pressing forward with another plan that faces roadblocks in Congress: closing the military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba which shows how obama is really on there side in trying to help them escape but being let go from prison. This makes me feel as if they should not close this prison because more people would be in danger than not mainly because there would be criminals on the loose rather than a highly protected prison On the other hand obama should not close this place because. My thoughts on this is that
    Interrogation plays a big role when an inmate has been detained mainly because it allows the person to explain themselves through the question that is being presented to them. For instance an integration allows the detainee to show the cop why the person did what they did or wanted to do for instance

  • Guantanamo Bay needs to stay open.

    Without defense of the United States, terrorists will continue to attack and if they get moved to the United States it is easier to get to a prison on land and busting the prisoners out. As for Guantanamo Bay is in Cuba and from the closest point of land Cuba is a little under 100 miles from Florida. Plus, it is harder to get to Gitmo than the U.S.

  • Enough punishment for the accused

    If a person is that dangerous to go to gtmo, he definitely deserves the punishment he gets. Imagine how hard it is for him to live without even being able to walk outside or pray. The detainees are all told "We will destroy you, so you will be a better person" and honestly such people need to be destroyed.

  • Keep it open.

    It is imperative that we keep those who threaten our country the most under control. If we close Guantanamo Bay, then those dangerous criminals will likely plan and attack American soil. Not to mention the fact that we need to make an example of them. To show others that we will not back down in the face of terror.

  • Keep It Open

    - American troops should not have to fight the same enemy twice
    - Congress should move to thwart the president’s strategy and retain Guantanamo so American troops do not have to fight the same enemy twice.
    - In reality, the Gitmo system is a rational, moral, and perfectly legal institution necessary to deal with a novel problem faced by the United States after 9/11: how to detain, gather intelligence from, and, if required, try suspected foreign terrorists captured on the battlefield.
    - Under the international laws of war, the detainees held at Guantanamo Bay are “illegal enemy belligerents,” not prisoners of war or common criminals with constitutional rights.
    - We want to know who these people are, where they are going, what the risks are, and how the recipient countries will ensure they do not return to the battlefield.
    - Gitmo will then only hold 60 to 80 detainees, those deemed too dangerous to try by commission, transfer, or release.
    - The Armed Services Committees should once again prohibit detainee transfers to the United States and mandate that detainees be transferred only to third-party countries that agree to enforce rigorous monitoring and travel bans.
    - More importantly, members of Congress need to make the moral case for keeping the Guantanamo option open for future presidents who might place a higher priority on national security than this president’s leftist “lead from behind” ideology.
    - The president refuses to capture and detain, so he continues to use his only other option: Execution by drone.
    - The more pressing moral concern involves keeping the American people and our deployed troops safe from those we have released from Gitmo. The case that responsible conservatives must make to the American people is simple and persuasive: Making our troops fight the same enemy twice is completely immoral.

  • Keep It Open

    In reality, the Gitmo system is a rational, moral, and perfectly legal institution necessary to deal with a novel problem faced by the United States after 9/11: how to detain, gather intelligence from, and, if required, try suspected foreign terrorists captured on the battlefield. We want to know who these people are, where they are going, what the risks are, and how the recipient countries will ensure they do not return to the battlefield. It houses high-value terrorist detainees, like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the architect of September 11. It has been said that the mere existence of Guantanamo is a recruiting tool for the enemy. However, recall that there was no Guantanamo detention facility when al Qaeda bombed the World Trade Center in 2001 or blew up the U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998 or attacked the USS Cole in 2000. The majority of Guantánamo detainees now live in communal facilities where they can eat, pray and exercise together. If moved to the United States, these same men would most likely be held in military detention in conditions akin to supermax prisons — confined to their cells 22 hours a day and prohibited from engaging in group activities, including communal prayer. The hard-won improvements in conditions would be ratcheted back half a decade to their previous level of harshness. American troops should not have to fight the same enemy twice. Congress should move to thwart the president’s strategy and retain Guantanamo so American troops do not have to fight the same enemy twice. More importantly, members of Congress need to make the moral case for keeping the Guantanamo option open for future presidents who might place a higher priority on national security than this president’s leftist “lead from behind” ideology.

  • Why does it need to be open?

    It's an organization that exists only to instill fear into people and make prisoners hate the US even more. People don't even get a trial here. The US makes 9/11 seem like such a bad thing but it dropped nukes in Nagasaki and Hiroshima, so why is the US not jailed for this? Some sites have stated that the US is in a state of war with these terrorist nations, so isn't this the same situation as Japan? Freaking hypocrites.

  • Unfair treatment used

    In my opinion I feel as though the facility should close because there are some prisoners inside that may be innocent. These people should not be punished for one's opinion.The United States should not use its power to violate treaties it signed and abuse prisoners of war, and the first step to showing the world that the US is changing would be to close Guantanamo Bay immediately.

  • Close it down.

    Guantanamo Bay violates human rights. However, those humans are terrorists and deserved to be tried by the country that they want to tear down. If Guantanamo Bay is closed, those people won't go free! They will be detained on American soil and tried by the court of law. Some (albeit few) have been wrongly placed in Guantanamo Bay and will be removed from it by the American justice system.

  • GITMO must go

    GITMO violates human rights, costs a fortune, puts innocent lives at risk of death, tortures people terribly and also violates the constitution. GITMO is not needed in our country due to these in despicable actions. Our taxpayers are also paying money and it is going towards gitmo even though there is no use.

  • Guantanamo bay should be shut down

    Many innocent people are locked up in detention camp in Cuba being tortured brutally for being suspect terrorist when no proof has been given, and that is nearly more then half of the prisoners. They're being treated in a inhumain manor disgustingly punished to admit the fact they're terrorists however they are innocent, It needs to be closed and justice for the innocent prisoners MUST be give.

  • It is a violation of human rights.

    Despite the fact that the prisoners are yes, prisoners- Guantanamo Bay fails to facilitate each person with basic civil, human rights. It is thought that half of these prisoners are in fact innocent, so why have they been admitted to this detention camp without a trial? It needs to be closed, and the prisoners who are in fact guilty of terrorism or war crimes should be admitted to other prisons- preferably in their own country.

  • Guantanamo Bay Never Should Have Existed in the First Place

    Guantanamo Bay is a violation of international treaties and never should have existed in the first place. The United States should not use its power to violate treaties it signed and abuse prisoners of war, and the first step to showing the world that the US is changing would be to close Guantanamo Bay immediately.
