Sen. Patrick Leahy (D - Vermont)

"Guantanamo Bay -- in addition to Abu Ghraib -- is a national disgrace, an international embarrassment to us and to our ideals, and a festering threat to our security. It is a legal black hole that dishonors our principles. America was once viewed as a leader in human rights and the rule of law, but Guantanamo has drained our leadership, our credibility and the world's good will for America at alarming rates. Even our closest allies cannot condone the policies embraced by this government, not to mention the significant damage that has been caused by allegations and proven incidents of detainee abuse in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo. These are not the policies of a great and good nation like ours, and this is not the American system of justice."

**Fact: More people died in the back of Ted Kennedy's car than have died at American-held Abu Ghraib!! --> You choose
