@PaulRyan said, “The law is the law. If the president takes illegal action on Guantanamo, we will be ready to respond,” which totally ignores the vast illegality of #Guantanamo. George Orwell pointed out that “if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed then the lie passed into history and became truth.”
Guantanamo is a lie. Illegal from its inception, it tramples the Rule of Law, and denies basic rights, which all Americans hold as sacred, to the human beings held there. We can next expect Ryan’s Republicans to next tell us: War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
