Aisha Maniar, an organiser for the London Guantánamo Campaign, says, “Unlike in previous campaigns, the illegal detention camp at Guantánamo Bay has not been an election issue this year; its closure has only been raised by Green candidate Dr Jill Stein. Outgoing President Barack Obama’s many promises to close the detention facility are almost certainly broken with 60 prisoners remaining, many of whom were subject to some of the worst forms of torture meted out by the CIA, the US military and its allies. Rather than closing Guantánamo, Barack Obama is more interested in covering the tracks of his own human rights abuses as president.
