Guantanamo Bay Prisons Could Be Moving To A Town Near You According To New Pentagon Plan

For years, many have protested the inhumane treatment that takes place at the US military base in Guantanamo Bay, and over time the US government has begun to scale back their activity at that site. However, they have not stopped the torture of detainees and other inhumane practices that the US military is involved in, these activities have just been spread out across numerous other bases both in the US and abroad.

In a recent Pentagon strategy to relocate prisoners from Guantanamo, the agency is proposing that the prison be moved to a military base in Charleston, South Carolina.

According to Department of Defense spokesperson, Gary Ross, the base in Charleston will be inspected this week to see if it is suitable as a replacement.


“These site surveys are necessary to determine potential locations for detaining a limited number of individuals in the United States and to assess the costs associated with doing so. Prudent planning and site visits are necessary in order to assess all potential locations and costs associated with any potential options,” Ross told the Associated Press in an emailed statement.

If the Charleston location is not chosen then there are other possibilities that are also being considered, including Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. However, many states have been resistant to the plan, with the governor of Kansas recently threatening to sue Obama if detainees from the infamous prison are brought to his state.

Some of the detainees were children when captured; throughout the prison’s dark history there have been multiple cases of children as young as 12 or 13 years old who were tortured and held without trial. In fact, although the prison still holds over 100 people, almost 1000 have passed through, and many of them were proven innocent and released years after being declared an “enemy combatant” and submitted to torture and imprisonment.

Over the years, the military dungeons at Guantanamo Bay have become largely forgotten by the general population back home in the United States. Since the election of Barack Obama, many of the people who protested wars and the inhumane acts of the military industrial complex are now silent as if nothing has ever happened. To make matters even worse, the practices at Guantanamo have been exported elsewhere, so even if the prison does eventually close down, the culture of violence and torture that it represented will continue to live on in prisons and military bases across the world.

    Methinks the writer has a SLIGHT Libertard bias!!

    • AP, HE IS ABSOULTE NUTS, NEVER BEEN IN OMBAT, DOES NOT REALIZE WHAT REAL COMBAT IS, GIVE US ANOTHER FIVE YEARS OR LESS, AND THIS IDIOT WILL UNDERSTAND. HE HAD BETTER LEARN HOW TO USE A GUN.

  3. considering the fact that Obama is bringing in thousands of potential terrorists each month this is really a non-issue

  4. THEY KILL US AND ALL CHRISTIANS, WHY BRING THEM HERE TO EXCAPE AND START KILLING AGAIN. GIVE THEM CONCRETE SHOES AND DROP THEM 50 MILES OUT AND TELL THEM TO SMIM.

  5. The writer of this article doesn’t even attempt to hide the bias.

    Gitmo is a state of the art facility, and although the prisoners there are the worst of the worst, they are treated far better than any other prison.

    Gitmo must stay open. Both the writer and obama are America hating communist goons.

    • Been there seen that what you say is the truth. We tolerate crap out of these rag heads that would never be tolerated in a US prison.

  6. What a pathetic attempt to lie. This writer is a foolish, stupid twit. Kill the prisoners, and be done with it. The idea that those conniving, blood thirsty scum don’t deserve prison, they deserve death. I say, take them up in a plane, push them out one by one, over the ocean, and feed the sharks….now that seems merciful to me.

  7. Wow, this writer is just dripping with his “bleeding heart” . Does he not realize if these people were let free that they would spend the rest of their lives trying to kill Americans ??!! I wish “bleeding hearts” would let those people move in with them. Their throat would be slit within 2 seconds….now they have a bleeding neck.
