Obama’s promise to close the terrorist prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will be a little easier to keep now that Portugal and Germany have offered to take in prisoners who do not wish to return to their own countries for fear of torture, prosecution, or execution. The Germany press of both left and right is behind its government’s decision to take prisoners if there are no legal inhibitions. “Germany has a special responsibility for taking these people in. At least 275 flights taking prisoners to Guantanamo, black sites or torture centers either took off, landed or flew through German airspace since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, writes Die Tageszeitung. “These prisoners should be considered innocent until proven guilty, and that's why we should consider helping the Americans remove the moral burden of the prison camp,” writes Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
