The President You Got

Is this what you thought you elected, America?

"’08 ruling may snag Obama administration’s Guantanamo plans

The rulings in the Hatim case and the 31 others may be a harbinger of trouble for the Obama administration, which is considering plans to indefinitely detain dozens of Guantanamo Bay prisoners without civilian or military trials....

A Justice Department-led task force has concluded that... about 50 who are considered too dangerous to be freed but cannot face trial because the evidence is too weak to hold up in court.... "

That's change?

"Under Obama, US opts for more killings, not captures, of terrorists

The Obama administration has authorized such targeted killings more frequently than the Bush administration did in its final years...."

Yeah, that is change but in the wrong direction.
