White House dismisses UN report calling for closure of prison

Just out of curiousity, how come we expect Iran to cooperate with the UN when we basically tell the UN to go fuck themselves on a consistent basis?

The White House has dismissed a UN report that calls for the closure of the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

We can't close the prison. Tomorrow's finger-painting!

White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters on Thursday, that investigators who prepared the document discredited the United Nations by reporting allegations made by detainees without, as he put it, divulging into the facts.

What the fuck does that mean? You mean they released a report without really knowing the facts? Like saying a middle eastern country has weapons of mass destruction without really knowing...hold on, someone's banging at my door.
Alright, I'm back. Body cavity searches make me feel sad.

The UN report, issued earlier in the day, said that the US government is violating prisoners' rights to a fair trial and recommended that the US either try or release all detainees.

Well we can't release them cause they're not happy people and they might be bitter about the whole held without trial and mistreated and having their rights violated and all that. Can't have that now. Better to keep them locked away. Like the naughty children in my basement...hold on, door again.

About 500 prisoners are being held at Guantanamo on suspicion of links to al-Qaeda or the Taliban.

We really should try to prove their links though. I mean, imagine being held in prison for five years on suspicion of doing somthing you didn't do. In a foreign country. It would suck. Now I'm not saying we should let them go but I'm saying maybe an investigation is in order to try and figure out if these people are really bad guys or maybe, good guys who looked like bad guys but are now bad guys cause we treated them like shit.
