"Important" is relative. But I don't think it is "important" enough for most people to be pissed about
simply because for most people, there are more pressing issues in their lives than jailed foreigners suspected of terrorism. At the end of the day, are people voting on their economic interests, health care, etc, or whether we are being too mean to people fighting against our troops?
Also, the issue with Gitmo was/is not so much simply that people are held there--it is their treatment. Many, including myself, don't think we should torture. And while I'm not really losing sleep over Korans being pissed on or whatever else they were doing, I think it is stupid and hurts the US. Knock that shit off and have some sort of way to deal with and determine a fate for these people other than indefinite detention--that is the real issue, not the location where they are being held.
