How I learned to love stop worring and love the War.

Awww, poor Barry. Seems like all that rhetoric was all for naught. I don't expect this article to be talked about on the news anytime soon.
A Pentagon review of conditions in the Guantanamo Bay military prison has concluded that the treatment of detainees meets the requirements of the Geneva Conventions but that prisoners in the highest-security camps should be allowed more religious and social interaction, according to a government official who has read the 85-page document.
So let us see:
  • Obama signed an order to close GITMO within a year, citing of course the horrible conditions that those poor poor "So called" Terrorists have to endure. It was just so bad that it had to be closed. Of course, he didn't know what to do with the prisoners at all. Breaking his campaign promise to immediately end and close GITMO as soon as he becomes President. Yeah it's been a month now, still don't know what to do with those terrorist.
  • Don't worry, he's just wingin' it.
  • Obama then sends drones into Pakistan, in his first week, err first 3 days. 15 people are dead. Now if McCain would have done that, he immediately would be called a warmonger.
  • Now of course comes the cu de gras. Obama announces 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan.
What's even better about the Afghan "surge" is that Obama didn't even have the decency to have a Press Conference about it. He just slipped it into a press release at 17:00 on Monday, waiting to have a statement on Tuesday.
"This reinforcement will contribute to the security of the Afghan people and to stability in Afghanistan," Obama said in a statement. "I recognize the extraordinary strain that this deployment places on our troops and military families. I honor their service, and will give them the support they need."
I wonder if code pinkers will be calling Obama warmonger anytime soon. Obama couldn't admit that the Surge worked, yet of course he is going to use the exact same strategy that he once called "a failure." Ha some change. I wonder if any Democrats will put funding cuts for Afghanistan in any bills this year?

One word to describe this administration so far: Hypocrisy.
