White House Is Drafting Executive Order to Allow Indefinite Detention of Terror Suspects
The Obama administration, fearing a battle with Congress that could stall plans to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, is drafting an executive order that would reassert presidential authority to incarcerate terrorism suspects indefinitely, according to three senior government officials with knowledge of White House deliberations.
Such an order would embrace claims by former president George W. Bush that certain people can be detained without trial for long periods under the laws of war.
Now, ain't that change you can believe in, eh?
Fucking hellski: I knew this clown was going to be a fucking disaster, but Obama really is exceeding my expectations in terms of total, uncompromising fuck-wittery...
Yep: that's how you save the world, Barack: by imprisoning people without trial for just as long as you fucking please.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again: fuck. Ing. Hell. Ski.
