Summary: The AFF plan closes the Guantanamo detention facility center because of alleged human rights abuses and violations of international law. This neg brief shows that those “human rights abuses” don’t occur, and that the terror suspects are being treated fairly. The detainees in GTMO aren’t mere criminals – they aren’t even normal prisoners of war –so they are not legally entitled to due process. Legal problems arose in the past when President Obama attempted to empty Guantanamo and release detainees. Closing GTMO would threaten national security by putting terrorists in domestic prisons and by getting rid of a crucial intelligence source. Finally, the limits of the Federal Court System mean that the aff plan risks releasing confirmed terrorists. This has happened in the past with GTMO detainees, and these terrorists have gone on to kill even more innocent Americans.
