Fear of Guantanamo prisoners coming to mainland U.S.A.

Republican leaders have blocked the closing of the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba because they do not want terrorists held on United States Soil. In fact, there are already 443 convicted terrorists on U.S. Soil, far more than the 89 who remain in Cuba. The supermax in Florence, Colorado actually holds the largest number of terrorists in the nation at 44. Supermax is located 100 miles south of Denver and holds a member of Al Qaeda involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks as well as one of the Boston Marathon Bombers. The shoe bomber and underwear bomber are also being held at supermax. There are many reasons to close Guantanamo. For one, the torture techniques used there are a stain on the virtuous reputation of the United States as a whole. Second, it shows a weakness in our moral fabric in that we are unwilling to give those kept in Cuba due process. If we cannot even fulfill an individual’s right to due process, regardless of their alleged actions, are we really any different than the barbarians we have imprisoned? It is unjust to let that fear cloud our judgment and cause us to give up our ideals of due process.
