Obama resumes military trials in Guantánamo

Another broken promise by Obama. He broke his promise not to raise taxes. He broke his promise to cut the deficit. He broke his promise to cut government spending.

Obama to resume military commission trials for Guantánamo detainees
By Sam Youngman - 03/07/11 03:07 PM ET
President Obama on Monday ordered trials by military commission to resume at Guantánamo Bay.

The move signals another defeat for Obama, who pledged to close the terrorist detention facility in Cuba within one year of taking office.

In a fact sheet, the White House said Obama “remains committed” to closing the facility, but the president’s decision to lift the ban on military commissions signals the unlikelihood that Obama will successfully transfer all of the prisoners in Cuba.

Shortly after Obama came to office and announced his goal of closing the facility, the administration suspended new charges in military commissions in Cuba. . . .

But he didn't break his promise to "totally transform America" [into a growing American police state, into total corrupt Chicago mafia politics, to spend America into another great depression and epic austerity, and to grow the Nazi DHS into a new Stasi force for American oppression!] But hey...we have to pass the bill before we can see what's in it! LOL
