Chip Pitts was quoted in EWorldWire.

"The practices in the war on terror pioneered at Guantanamo Bay have corroded America's moral standing, and Guantanamo has come to symbolize the Administration's human rights violations in the war on terror as a whole," said Chip Pitts, president of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee (http://www.bordc.org) and former chair of Amnesty International USA. "In the process of restoring the America we believe in, closing Guantanamo is a critical step."
