Argument: Guantanamo was wrongly created to avoid US law and courts
Thomas Wilner. "We Don't Need Guantanamo Bay". Wall Street. December 22, 2008 - "closing the detention facility there does not mean that we cannot detain people. Guantanamo is only a place. But it is a place chosen by the Bush administration for a single purpose: to avoid the law. Because it is outside our borders, the administration argued that prisoners held there were beyond the jurisdiction of our courts and the protections of the Constitution. The Supreme Court has now rejected those arguments."
