Barack Obama yesterday ordered the closure of the Guantánamo Bay detention camp and CIA secret prisons, closing the book on the Bush administration’s controversial “war on terror” policies. (Financial Times)
Thank you for restoring dignity to the United States, President Obama.
He is striking the right notes in my book – banning torture, closing Guantanamo Bay, capping the salaries of White House staff to $100K (unlike a certain disappointing someone when he was elected in 2007)
A great leap forward, or a just return to order? Either way, fabulous news. Cheers to GOOD news, for once.
