Obama Approves Indefinite Detention For Guantanamo Bay Detainees

Obama has signed an executive order that approves indefinite detention for Guantanamo Bay detainees. Although Obama campaigned on promises to close the facility and to end indefinite detention, the executive order he signed authorizes the opposite.

Dissenting Justice has previously reported on the various ways in which the Obama administration has continued policies of the Bush administration, including indefinite detention, that liberals vocally criticized. This does not make Obama a bad president; instead, it should convince liberals not to believe everything that politicians promise while campaigning -- even if that politician is more appealing than others.

It does make Obama a bad President if you think Bush was a bad President for doing the same thing. Huff Po is full of old articles saying that.

Really, being an abuser of civil liberties and mass murderer doesn't make someone a bad president? I guess Bush was just peachy too then.
