12:32 pm
part of the reason this is happening because no outcry from the american public right. and it's not a particularly big issue is not high on many surprises can you explain that for international rights so with respect to national security and or the trumping ministrations stands they come at it from a position of being very strong on national security keeping a. facility like one town will be open is a symbol of that is this a level of significance and rebuking the obama administration agenda of trying to close it and keeping it open and trying to fill as many people with as possible whether they are charged with an actual crime or not of course you know the obama administration ran into a lot of red tape with respect to closing it because there were not many u.s. prisons or any people that wanted them to be transferred to the united states remind people what happened to president obama there's a clip that we've got and then you see me twenty thirteen and you see me twenty sixteen have a look. the idea that we would still maintain forever.
12:33 pm
a group of individuals who have not been tried that is contrary to who we are it is contrary it was in these discuss true that i have not been able to close the door. because of the congressional destructions the place of admission of failure of right right that right so people are being detained there's no trial people who create who knows where they're going to get out how do you fix that. well there are a number of different ways of course the chief area that you can look at is simply voting if you don't like the people who are in power you can vote to change congressional elections senate as well as the president and with respect to you know the kind of the bureaucracy that exists in washington. you have to try the force not force but encourage the next administration that comes in to put people who are passionate about those issues because it's not always about the
12:34 pm
presence of the president can always be the figurehead who has the vision but it's the people in the executive branch to carry out that policy and that's the most important part and you know what i think is very critical we the people are partly to blame because our members of congress wouldn't let obama do what he wanted and we would try to transfer our some of these folks to american presidents the communities got all upset so it's not you know i think as a country we have to you know get our act together and i think it would be wonderful if this would be an issue in the next election that people would talk about and say put me in there and i'm going to fix this problem so more americans are not going to get killed the reason though it will ever become a primary reason is because if you look at the politics of it if you are if you are for closing guantanamo bay that can put you in the camp of being a terrorist sympathizer that it's just as easy as that oh for sure which is just the way the american politics political messaging works i don't i think that they
12:35 pm
really i want to bring up this viewer comment actually not of your comment this is someone who tweeted back to you party's them and one of your organization's tweets queen n.t.o. says well those are terrorists and they should be locked up for life but we got a viewer comment from someone who spoke on that lawyer says the biggest challenge is that we successfully convince most of the u.s. and the world to the eight hundred we're all terrorists when most were sold for bounty and trying to. educate now which no administration has actually done is near impossible and before you answer that i just wanted to share this viewer comment someone was watching the show live and said this in a former detainee he says in fact we haven't escaped yet i was moved from guantanamo to another one and worse he was held from two thousand and two to two thousand and sixteen and is now in serbia but produce i know you wanted to comment on that earlier this week. there's a let's work back there i mean in terms of you know they're out here as service
12:36 pm
that we are. asked a question to herself but actually does she know about the alarm to change here or expect us at least a dozen times the government south. you know spokespeople for our people. has she ever had real exposure has she been able to hear the other side of the story fully sense or know the answer is no to those questions in terms of breaking down the population right now of this forty man thirty want never been charged with a crime. they are being held for her alleged conduct an eighteen year seventeen years ago capture the only evidence the government has ever had to show to justify their detention it's. it's only the amount of evidence they need to prove is a breach of contract case and negligence case we're talking about incarceration and white prison and the standard evidence the government has been hell to so has been
12:37 pm
held to one of the lowest that exists in a lot of. five of the men who remain has been cleared for transfer by the government itself but it's important to understand what that means that means that every government agency government agency not defense lawyers for the sake of these detentions has gotten together looked at the government's information about these people and determined their continued detention is not necessary for u.s. national security is how does it basically you are taking the trumpet ministration to court over this. how confident do you fill the junkies who will say you have a case. i don't constitute our legal position which is that indefinite detention starts at particular. suspect's house here it is entirely up to me and i was
12:38 pm
slow and it's pretty good i so if you are very confident. i think it remains to be seen you know i don't know i just will decide we thought when we brought our first question. or. actually i'm right after nine eleven that we can't we and we wired right i think the court starts yes i agree also larry the public needs to hear it is there is pressure that people can exert on their members of congress that matters and i think it is it's hard it was trying to trace this everywhere of your quest to change and. it's crucial to remember the public pressure so. i'm going to leave it there thank you public pressure still not his many co what's going on online will endure this week from lauren who says above all guantanamo's existence cannot become an accepted fact and he one who believes in
12:39 pm
fair trial rights needs to keep themselves informed as to what's happening we can't turn a blind eye to rush and larry and. it's it's really good to have you on this program i feel that. this so much more to be said about guantanamo and it will in history when we look back at this time people will be questioning what happened and what potentially went wrong but for now we're going to wrap up the show thank you very much for being part of the stream media reshape the time today stis question can continue online so go to act eight a stream on twitter you can follow at twitter thread right that me can i will see you online thanks so much. capturing
