Former Guantanamo Prosecutor: Believed, Deceived, Converted to Defense Testifier

Lt. Col. Darrel Vandeveld went to Guantanamo a true believer in the cause.  Prosecute terrorists and whether life in prison or the death penalty; they got what they deserved, until after his arrival when he examined the evidence, the facilities, and the prisoners.  He realized something there was terribly wrong, he had been deceived, so then consulted with the defense attorneys which resulted in a conversion, a resignation, and testimony for the defense.  There are some people in Guantanamo that deserve prosecution and life long incarceration, but President Barack Obama is correct to close the facility and transfer everything to a more transparent system.
