Take an Indefinite Vacation!

Take an Indefinite Vacation!

click for comic

The ongoing hunger strike at Guantánamo Bay has begrudgingly brought our illegal prison back into the public consciousness. A couple months ago I did a cartoon with a panel about the idea of an indefinite vacation, and decided to expand on that idea in The Strip.

This Digby post sums up everything that’s wrong with the rationale behind Gitmo. America turned into a bunch of scared babies after 9/11, and history will forever remember this period as “The Great American Freak Out.” Hopefully history will also remember that we locked up dudes, tortured and never charged them, all because some bad guys turned us into a nation of pants-pissing reactionaries.
