Hope and Change

So much for hope and change under Obama. As ACLU reports, Obama has not only decided to reverse his promises to close Guantanamo and abandon the notorious military commissions, but has chosen to flaunt his betrayal with a military trial against a detainee whose ill treatment there was so abominable that the government could never have prevailed in a civilian court of law.

Imagine explaining to a jury that a suspect's confession was obtained hanging him by his arms while cuffed behind his back until they nearly dislocated, holding his face under water until he nearly suffocated, and bending him backwards naked, hooded, shackled and sleep-deprived while holding a gun to his head.
