Bill Clinton has become the most prominent figure so far to add his voice to criticisms of the US prison camp at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.

In an interview with the Financial Times, the former president called for the camp, set up to hold suspected terrorists, to “be closed down or cleaned up”….

Mr Clinton joined critics at home and abroad who have singled out the indefinite detention of prisoners without trial and widespread reports of human rights violations at Guantánamo. “It is time that there are no more stories coming out of there about people being abused,” he said….

Mr Clinton said uniformed US military personnel had been “very outspoken” about abuses at Guantánamo and elsewhere.

Aren’t you glad this guy left office?

Don’t you wish he finally would?

  1. This from the man who had no problem holding Cuban political refugees, including children, prisoners on the island for indefinite periods of time, with no legal rights, surrounded by barbed wire, living in makeshift structures or tents. Conditions were bad enough to warrant hunger strikes. What a hypocrite.
