ACLU APPLAUDS AMENDMENT TO CLOSE GUANTANAMO BAY DETENTION CENTER

WASHINGTON – The American Civil Liberties Union applauds today's filing of an amendment to the Department of Defense authorization bill that would close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. As the Senate debates the defense measure, which authorizes the Department of Defense for the next fiscal year, the American public is ensured that a debate and vote on the closure of Guantanamo Bay will now occur. The amendment was put forth by Senators Feinstein, Harkin, Dodd, Clinton, Brown, Bingaman, Kennedy, Whitehouse and Obama.

They'd still not release the prisoners who have been denied any due process of law (mundane law that is).
