Your Excellency,

I support closing the Guantánamo detention facility and urge you to get the job done, today.

The US government is obligated under international law to respect, protect and fulfill human rights. Each Guantánamo detainee 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, Guantánamo has given the world torture, indefinite detention and unfair trials.

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

Most respectfully,
