MSNBC fails to get it

Recently this article from MSNBC discussed the abuse in Guantánamo prisons. MSNBC fails to get it. In their article they compare Guantánamo to the nazi prison camps. They then discuss which one was worse, what holocaust survivors think and other people’s opinion.

My point is that nazi camps were wrong. Also, torture in Cuba is wrong. Since there is no judge that will determine if a detainee is actually guilty of anything, some detainee may not have any information at all. Subsequent torture can lead to false information that benefits no one.

There were camps (not so) long ago, people were killed, and that was wrong. It matters not if our camps are any better; they are still wrong. It seems like the MSNBC article serves only to confuse this issue.
