I write another letter

Dear Mr President, 

President Barack Obama's "administration is weighing plans to detain some terror suspects on US soil -- indefinitely and without trial -- as part of a plan to retool military commission trials that were conducted for prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay," The Wall Street Journal said 

I hope to heck this is a misprint. It is more than scary that this administration, which ran on "CHANGE" is ready to double down on the Bush/Cheney excesses. Justice is to be applied to everyone, without exception. Anything else is unacceptable. If the Bush administration instituted policies that left multiple prisoners unable to be prosecuted because of the misconduct of their accusers and interrogators, then that fact must be trumpeted as the number one most pragmatic reason that torture is ILLEGAL PERIOD.

To even contemplate holding anyone prisoner for the rest of their lives without trial is directly against everything that the United States of America stands for. It will put the cap upon the degradation of American Ideals.  

For the love of everything we believe in and hold dear, CEASE AND DESIST WITH THE HIGH LEVEL GOVERNMENT LAWBREAKING.  

Thank You 
SB Gypsy

I got an email from my step-daughter yesterday. All it said was: So, what it your current opinion of Obama?

Good question. My disappointment is starting to bubble over into outright outrage.
