Something to drool over...

...if you are a strange political anorak like me. Or indeed if you simply have a respect for basic human rights such as those contained in the Geneva Convention...

President Obama signs an executive order to close Guantanamo camp on Day Two in office. Note that behind him are US Flag Officers who campaigned for the US to return to its core values in detaining and interrogating suspects.

I have long believed that Guantanamo was a disgusting stain on the reputation of the USA and of Western civilisation in general. So to see this move made by Obama so promptly after he came into office is cause for celebration IMHO.
