WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama plans to sign an executive order Thursday to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center within a year and halt military trials of terror suspects held there, a senior administration official said. The executive order was one of three expected imminently on how to interrogate and prosecute al-Qaida, Taliban or other foreign fighters believed to threaten the United States.Holy crap. I mean, he said he'd do it, I knew he would, but the speed at which he's living up to his promises is making my head spin. Today alone the orders he put through regarding transparency, ethics reform, and lobbyist changes was amazing. Now to find out he's actually doing this, this quickly, is amazing.
GO OBAMA, GO! (3rd Bush term my ass, suck it Wingnuts!)
