Or, just maybe, those who seek to "blur" the line between Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib--two spaces of indefinite detention--do so in order to challenge what appears to them as an arbitrary and tactical distinction between legal regimes.  Yoo is a principle author of the now infamous torture memos, which paved the way for torture during the War on Terror.

An Iraqi detainee rests his head in his hands while sitting on a prayer rug in a holding pen in Camp Bucca, May 19, 2008.  At the time this image was taken, this war prison held more than 18,500 Iraqi detainees. In 2009 the U.S. military announced that the base would be closed, and the following year, the U.S. handed it over to the government of Iraq — in Umm Qasr port Basra Iraq.

This Life cartoon depicts U.S. Army soldiers giving a Filipino man the "water cure," a euphemism now known as water boarding. In the background soldiers representing various European nations look on smiling. The Europeans say, “Those pious Yankees can’t throw stones at us any more,” meaning that the USA no longer has the moral standing to criticize European colonial practices.
