@OmSigDAVID,
Irrelevant, and you know it.

First, even if it was leased, which Cuba has claimed it is not, military bases are considered American soil, just like embassies are. When you are on them you are subject to that country's laws, in this case, the laws of the United States.

Second, since the US directly claims that the lease is valid, they are making a point to establish that the military base is in fact US soil. The only case you can make that Gitmo prisoners are not in the US already is to first concede that the base itself is maintained illegitimately.

Come to DC, and to embassy row, and you'll have the ability to visit many countries while you're here.

The administration already brought the Uighers on US soil.

It is relevant and dispositive, unless the USSC changes it.

Nonsense; embassies really ARE American soil.

Only in your dreams.

@OmSigDAVID,
If you read the original treaty that leases us that land, you'll notice a few things...

1) It's not made with the current government of Cuba. Would a treaty with the USSR mean anything to Russia now unless renegotiated?
2) What we can do with the land is strictly outlined. We violate that a number of ways including holding prisoners. The Status of Forces agreement with the old gov of Cuba did not allow for this. Additionally, we have brought in commercial activity, which was prohibited. The agreement would have US troops spending US dollars in Cuba, not Cubans spending money on the base.

This is all just a sideshow though. The point of this thread is to talk about how we have imprisoned people for zero crime under any circumstances.
