US could Allow Guantanamo Prisoners Families to Visit...

The United States could allow relatives of detainees at its prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to visit them in an unprecedented policy shift, The Washington Post reports.

The change would mark an ''unprecedented step to ease the isolation of inmates who in some cases have been held at the US facility for close to a decade'', said the report, which cited unnamed congressional aides. The International Committee of the Red Cross ''has been in serious discussions with the Pentagon about a visitation program'', the report said, citing the aides. The Guantanamo Bay camp, located on the US naval base in south-eastern Cuba, was opened by then president George W. Bush in 2002.

Among the Guantanamo detainees are September 11, 2001, mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other men accused of planning the attacks.

More than half of the 172 Guantanamo Bay detainees have been cleared to leave by the Obama administration, but the US has not yet found a country to accept them, or does not believe there are adequate human rights guarantees in countries where they have been accepted...

It would only seem like the human thing to do...To at least allow the families of the detainees visit them...Its not like the family members did anything wrong to deserve being punished by not seeing them...For the most part I really dont think that 95% of the prisoners should be there to begin with...

American government and politicians are always trying to justify the Wars/Conflicts they enter by saying that the dictators of the country are treating their people badly and blah blah blah...But where do they get off saying anything when for the last 10 years they have treated these people like animals...With no trails or anything...

Shoot,even proven guilty murders in America are allowed visitors and the Guantanamo Detainees havent even been formerly charged...Its all been specualations and suspicions for those prisoners who have no chance of proving their innocents as long as the dictators who run this country have the final word...

So much for OBAMA closing the place like he promised so many times...Hes more worries with make believe BIN LADEN and what other dictators are supposedably doing to their people that he must haveforgotten about his own people..And no,Im not talking about Kenyan's...

Sounds Like the TPTB are starting to phase out the war on terrorism so they can bring on the alien invasion lie to roll out the next phase in their agenda. Google Carol Rosinin
