Naomi Wolf on razing Guantanamo to the ground.

Wolf: We, you know, sees you from a bounty hunter or we put you in a shipping container where you almost suffocate, we chain you to the floor, you defecate on yourself, we put you in cages, we threaten your family, we torture you, we attach electricity to your genitals, we hang you from the ceiling, we tell you that you’re never getting out, we strip you through process.  And now, six years later, you’re released.  Do we owe them something?  I wish every church and synagogue in this country was asking prisoners these questions, do we owe something?  I think we owe them a great, great deal.  And the first thing we owe them is apology and the second thing we owe them is to dismantle Guantanamo and raze it to the ground and set up a marker on it like [IB] and the third thing we owe them is the reinstatement of the rule of law in Habeas Corpus in every single place that we’re responsible for people around the world including here at home.
