Tom Friedman says “Shut Gitmo Down”

Friday, May 27, 2005

In today’s New York Times Friedman, perhaps the most-read columnist in America and certainly no liberal, reports from England where a rising tide of revulsion against American treatment of prisoners is unmistakable. This is a just small part of what he writes:

Husain Haqqani, a thoughtful Pakistani scholar now teaching at Boston University, remarked to me: “When people like myself say American values must be emulated and America is a bastion of freedom, we get Guantánamo Bay thrown in our faces. When we talk about the America of Jefferson and Hamilton, people back home say to us: ‘That is not the America we are dealing with. We are dealing with the America of imprisonment without trial.'” Guantánamo Bay is becoming the anti-Statue of Liberty.
