Crime Fighter Obama

Torture! Detention! Geneva Convention! Oh my! While we watch our Pomona neighborhoods, President Obama is watching a broader sort of neighborhood. He spent a few minutes of his day signing executive orders to put an end to crimes committed by agents of our federal government. You can check out the text of the executive orders. In a nutshell, the executive orders compel:

1. The closure of Guantanamo Bay.
2. A review of detention policies.
2. The lawful interrogation of prisoners.
3. A review of the detention of Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri (the only enemy combatant held on US soil)

An impressive Day 2, I dare say.
