March 26, 2009
Press Release


“Guantanamo is a symbol of everything we did wrong,” said Johnson, a former criminal defense attorney. “It’s an ugly reminder of the fact that our international relations have been severely damaged.


Our good name and reputation around the world has been tarnished. American policy does not support torture. Everyone – including these detainees – has a right to due process. I wanted to see the facility for myself, and it just reinforced my thoughts that it should be closed.”
