Now is the Time to Finally Close Guantánamo

The military prison at Guantánamo Bay represents grave violations of human rights by the U.S. government. As it enters its 21th year of existence as a center for indefinite detention, it continues to hold 35 Muslim men, most without charge, none having received a fair trial. Many, like Toffiq al-Bihani, were tortured by the U.S. government. Twenty of the detainees, including al-Bihani, have been cleared for transfer to other countries yet remain behind bars.

President Biden has a critical window of opportunity to end this ongoing abuse of human rights by closing the detention center once and for all. He needs to move quickly to do it.
