Thanks for asking me to sign this. I too have been very disappointed that Guantanamo is still open. However, my understanding is that the problem is in Congress and I see no point in writing to Michelle or Barack Obama whilst Congress - and the Senate in particular - would continue to block progress.
Ever thought why the release has not taken place? It is because someone in the US Government believes that preventing 'loss of face' is more important than the life or existence of that individual. Innocence, illegality or immorality have no meaning for the US Government, the public face is all that matters.
It is awful to think that the President doesn't have the power to close Guantanamo, because the political system stops him! Please urge him to do something presidential on this! There are many prisoners there who are innocent and have been told that years ago and yet they are still there!
Please help them, by persuading Barack to close it and release the innocent!
The GOP has blocked his attempts to close Guantanamo. Nothing will change until Democrats take back the House of Representatives. Republicans, Tea Party, Evangelical Christians and their paranoid delusional base hates Muslims.
I gladly signed the petition anyway and pray they close this awful place.
Estou de acordo Kenny eu também faço votos para que fechem esse lugar horrivel
Firmato, posto terrificante che pensavo fosse stato già chiuso e demolito da tempo !!! Gli innocenti devono tornare a casa !

IN FACT THE WORLD TOP LEADERS MUST THINK & DECIDE ON THIS SERIOUSLY THAT NO DETAINEE IN THE WORLD, SHOULD BE DETAINED BEYOND HIS ACTUAL AWARDED TERM...
THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CRIME NOT TO RELEASE SUCH PRISONERS WHO HAVE BEEN IN PRISON FOR MORE THEN
14 YEARS (USUAL TIME FOR THE "LIFE TERM..!!")
