Obama signing order

From the New York Times:

WASHINGTON — Saying that “our ideals give us the strength and moral high ground” to combat terrorism, President Obama signed executive orders Thursday effectively ending the Central Intelligence Agency’s secret interrogation program, directing the closing of the Guantánamo Bay detention camp within a year and setting up a sweeping, high-level review of the best way to hold and question terrorist suspects in the future.

Finally, the end is in sight. Now for turning Bush and his cabinet over to the Hague! This justice thing is infectious.

    Thanks, digiom! That’s really kind. It’s a strong incentive to write more knowing thoughtful readers like yourself stop by. 🙂

    I’m doing alright, generally better now that I can listen to music all day with a new iPod. The dissertation continues. In many ways I’ve turned grad school into my Magic Mountain. I’d like to soon finish my Castorp period. More regular writing may be just what the doctor ordered.

    How are you doing? What’s new?
