"But then the Gitmo management has already broken so many rules and US presidents have proved helpless to close it (Bush said he wanted it closed too, not just Obama), suggesting insurrectionist elements not accountable to the Constitution (or "taxpayers") have control of the "US" military (not a new concept given privatization and reliance on contractor-mercenaries, and bank credit, for wars the Treasury literally cannot afford).
