I think for most non-Americans it is -- quite understandably -- a non-issue.
I disagree, Andrew.
It remains an important issue outside the US.
Particularly in those countries whose citizens have been detained at Guantanamo, understandably. (my country being just one of them)
I regularly see & read articles from news sources outside the US ... like the Guardian, the BBC, the ABC, Oz news sources like the AGE, SMH, etc ....
So it remains an important issue for quite a few outside your country.
What still bewilders me is the attitude of the US Congress. And the apparent endorsement of that attitude by your president.
I honestly don't get it, given the bad press for the US re human rights & the sheer cost to taxpayers of maintaining the place.
Is it (Guantanamo) one of those "political football" issues between the left & the right where never the twain shall meet? (similar to the issue of asylum seekers in Oz, where we appear to be unable to reach a humane, rational resolution because it is one of those hot "trigger" issues in opinion polls.)
ps .... nice to see you have your avatar back at last. Good to "see" you again!
