Catholic Cardinal says Shut Down Guantanamo

An influential Catholic cardinal, Archbishop Martino, has called for the US to shut down its concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay. ...

According to Catholic News Service:

The president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace spoke out on behalf of about 500 people, classified as "enemy combatants," who are being held by US military forces at the base in Cuba. The Italian cardinal said that "something must be done when human rights are not respected." He encouraged "international insistence that might obtain the desired results."
