A Good Thing

The new President did this. I hope Bu$hCo feels his pain. If you read the story, however, there are a few caveats, so it's not quite the freedom story one could have hoped for. But, so I don't bring down any of my four loyal readers, I think it's a good start.
Saying that “our ideals give us the strength and moral high ground” to combat terrorism, President Obama signed executive orders Thursday ending the Central Intelligence Agency’s secret overseas prisons, banning coercive interrogation methods and closing the Guantánamo Bay detention camp within a year.
My emphasis. I also wish he would have closed Guantánamo yesterday.
