Guards and detainees clash at Guantánamo Bay prison

Take the prisoners out of Guantánamo

What possible good reason can there be for continuing to torture young men [“Detainees confront guards in Gitmo raid,” front page, April 17]? Certainly no moral reason, no strategic reason, no economic reason.

These men who have been imprisoned for 11 years and tortured, declared innocent and still not released, are screaming for justice. Their suffering and possible death by desperation will inspire the terrorists that they are not.

Mary Margaret Pruitt, Seattle
