It's not just Guantanamo

I get my first Christmas wish: Guantanamo is closing. And it's not just this festering boil of a jail; it's the entire network of black jails.

I would like a complete end to all of this foulness and the vile "extraordinary renditions." I don't want to be a citizen of a country that claims to be "free" and yet makes people disappear. Bad enough that we have lost the ability to respect habeus corpus after writing it into law over 200 years ago. America needs to get back on track and not be engaging in or sending people off to be tortured, or holding them "prisoner."

Ultimately, I'd like to see the Bush cabinet all tried for war crimes, but that may be a way off yet.
