    These articles are based on a huge trove of secret documents leaked last year to the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks and made available to The New York Times by another source on the condition of anonymity.

    ""While we're at it, we're going to close Guantanamo. And we're going to restore habeas corpus. ... We're going to lead by example _ by not just word but by deed. That's our vision for the future."

    There is absolutely no defending of President Obama when it comes to his hypocrisy on Gitmo.

    After his announcement that the Constitution would be followed and applied to the prisoners at Gitmo was later overturned, Eric Holder should have quit in protest.

    Obama has become David Souter in reverse.

    Ever occur to anybody that maybe the rough tough Bushie Boy should have ordered about 90% of the Gitmo grunts executed on sight??

    Based on just released Wikileak docs I would say that you are right.
