Video: Author Andy Worthington Rips President Obama for Not Closing Guantanamo


By BillyClub - Posted on 11 January 2013

On Saturday afternoon, January 11, 2013, a rally/protest demanding the closure of Guantanamo prison was held at the Ellipse, just south of the White House. One of the speaker at the event was the investigative journalist, filmmaker and author, Andy Worthington. He is the author of “The Guantanamo Files.” See: AndyWorthington Mr. Worthington underscored that President Barack Obama has failed to keep his promise to close the notorious facility. He said that 86 of the inmates currently held at the prison were “cleared for release,” but are still “indefinitely detained.” Mr. Worthington labeled the situation a “horrible injustice” and urged the American people to put pressure on the President to do his duty and to uphold the rule of law.
