Proposed Legislation

Earlier this week, Senator Dianne Feinstein proposed a bill that would close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. This holding cell for "terrorists" has attracted international scorn not merely from human rights organizations, but from virtually every industrialized country in the world. Should this legislation pass, Gitmo would be shut down within 100 days of its enactment.

We applaud the efforts of the senator from California, and think we have the makings of a successful paradigm: if we can get out of Gitmo in 100 days, we can get out of Iraq by July!
