Risch: "What is said in the press about Guantanamo is inaccurate and overblown"
The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a detainment facility of the United States located within the United States' Guantanamo Bay Naval Base on the island of Cuba.Risch continues:
Unfortunately, in January 2009 President Obama issued an executive order to close the detention center and transfer the detainees. In January, Congress prohibited the transfer of detainees from Guantanamo Bay to the United States, and six months ago, President Obama reversed his position, issuing a new executive order to try detainees using the military commissions authorized by Congress."While some detainees were able to be released or transferred to other countries for detention, there remains a clear case for maintaining the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay," concluded Risch. Traveling with Senator Risch on the military tour were Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), Senator John Hoeven (R-ND), and Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO). There is broad opposition from representatives in Congress. So is the role of the press in Guantanamo a flawed endeavor? How so?
