Renewed faith

The beginnings of Gitmo

There was no reason not to believe that our egregious treatment of detainees was the Bush administration’s fault, but it’s nice to read how the military initially reacted to the task at hand (managing detainees) and to highlight exactly where the blame needs to fall – not on the servicemen and women, but the civilian administrators who ordered harsh treatment and denied the Geneva convention.

Even though I knew that the Obama administration would be a huuge change in tone and message from the Bush administration, it’s always nice to get shining reminders of that fact and to realize we’re hopefully returning to an America with integrity.
