Tremendous damage done by Guantanamo Bay cannot be ignored

Ming Campbell MP, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats, responding to Tony Blair’s comments about Guantanamo Bay at his monthly news conference, said:

The Prime Minister at last seems to be moving publicly towards the condemnation of Guantanamo Bay. But what no one must ignore is the enormous damage it has done to the reputation and credibility of the United States and the United Kingdom.

Guantanamo Bay violates every accepted principle of law. It is hardly surprising that it has proven to be a fertile source of propaganda for Al-Qaeda and their associates.
