Sucks to be You

Barack Obama today signed an Executive Order to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  This order also closes secret CIA-operated prisons but doesn’t prohibit using them to house suspects for temporary detention.

Gitmo’s” closing is to occur within a year. According to the Washington Post: within a year, an immediate case-by-case review of the 245 detainees remaining there, and the application of new rules governing the treatment and interrogation of prisoners, including compliance with international treaties that the Bush administration deemed inapplicable to suspects in terrorism cases.
