WaPo says Gitmo = legal

The Washington Post reported that a review ordered by the Obamessiah administration shows that the treatment of detainees at Gitmo meets the requirements of the Geneva convention.

Does this mean that yet another one of the Obamessiah's campaign promises will get broken? Perhaps, but it's possible that they'll still close it because it just 'looks bad' and we certainly can't have that. Better to close a perfectly legal detention facility because it looks bad than break a promise. Better to close a place where these guys can't plan further attacks on Americans than lose face with Europeans.

Funny how suddenly when the Obamessiah gets briefed by people who actually know what the hell is going on in the world, his campaign promises get modified a tad. I guess we can be thankful that he does have the sense to listen to his briefings and not charge forward with these promises made to the frothing leftwing of his Dimwitocrat party.

For now anyway.
