How convenient! The day after Obama signs a few pieces of paper changing things, you get this news? All I know isâ€¦if Bush Administration had not disgracefully violated the Geneva Convention and allowed the abuse of prisoners to be carried on, elected president Obama wouldnâ€™t now have to face such a drastic decision like this. Guantanamo Bay, one of the few concentration camps publicly recognized by a democratic government, being completely â€œoutsideâ€ of the Judicial System, having enabled the use of torture and human rights violations against detainees. And it is known that â€œTorture doesn't stop terror. Torture is terror.â€ So, it seems to be (a drastic), but also an Intelligent Obamaâ€™s first step ordering to end torture and close Gitmo.
