The long overdue Petition to Close the Guantanamo Concentration Camp is here. http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/i-support-closing-guantanamo

We have 315 million people in this country. Let's see if 1 million signatures will shut this illegal nightmare down for good. Here is the text:
To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama
I support closing the Guantanamo detention facility and urge you to get the job done, today.

The U.S. government is obligated under international law to respect, protect, and fulfill human rights. All Guantanamo detainees must either be charged and fairly tried in federal court or be released to countries that will respect their human rights.

Instead of justice for the September 11 attacks, Guantanamo has given the world torture, indefinite detention, and unfair trials.

It is well past time to change course and close the detention facility.
