Helping America unshit the bed

Lindsay Stewart and Impolitical are duking it out over puffy Steve's refusal to permit Guantanamo detainees to resettle in Canada.

Following the Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate refusing to allow the prisoners onto US soil, Obama appealed to the world to help put an end to Bush's gulag :
"Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world's problems alone," Obama said.
"Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges."

... while at the same time defending the Obama gulag at Bagram :

AP Sept 14, 2009 : "The Obama administration argued late Monday that allowing terrorism detainees in Afghanistan to file lawsuits in U.S. courts challenging their detention would endanger the military mission in that country.

Obama's Justice Department has sided with the congressional Republicans and put forward the same argument as the Bush administration."

And so it goes.
Plus ├ža change, plus c'est la fucking meme enabling chose ...
