Letter to the Editor Regarding ‘Local Congresswoman Votes Against Guantanamo Bay … ’ (9/22/16 Issue)

Dear Editor:

Among Obama’s promises that attracted me to him was that if he became president, he’d waste no time closing down the Guantanamo Bay prison.

Well … almost eight years later, I’m still waiting.

Incidentally, why doesn’t the government just call Guantanamo what it really is – a concentration camp?

The Sixth Amendment of our Constitution is not ambiguous: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial … ”

Those great men who signed the Constitution placed their trust in posterity to respect the justice for all, which they formulated in that unprecedented instrument of law.

Yet, if they could see how today’s custodians of the Constitution have abdicated their civic duty, I’m sure they’d weep.
