Pop the cork, blow your noisemaker and kiss a stranger because it's a celebration; congratulations are in order for Guantanamo Bay for finally expanding! Even when faced with condemnation from Amnesty International, which called it "the gulag of our time" and with two Supreme Court decisions, the first determining those imprisoned at Gitmo must be presented with a list of charges against them (Rasul v. Bush) and the second ruling calling tribunal courts unconstitutional (Hamdan v. Rumsfeld), the administration has found the courage to add a new facility dubbed Camp 6. Even Bush himself flaccidly stated he'd like to see the Cuban enclave discontinued. Now they can carry on the proud tradition of suspending prisoners' writ of habeas corpus - the cornerstone of Western justice - and detaining them indefinately. Here's to plenty more years of human rights violations. Cheers.
