I posted a diary (below) earlier today, about the worldwide GTMO protest, and I'm confused by the lack of response. I know not ALL of my diaries are 'jewels,' but with this earlier diary, I don't think it was about my writing. It just seems people are more and more apathetic about this issue these days.
I'm concerned because, this is how the world is seeing us, and no matter how well Obama performs his job, and I do love the man, this is like a deep cut in our so called democracy and international relations. Each day we detain these prisoners without a trial, and torture them by force-feeding, we are throwing salt into the wound.
So I would surely love to hear thoughts about why the nation and activists don't seem to care. Is it because no one wants to deal with it anymore? I'm perplexed.
