Despite President Barack Obama's moves to ban torture and close Guantanamo Bay, human rights advocates are angry some policies toward "terror" detainees do not depart enough from those of the previous administration."Outrage around the world"??? No, just outrage from denizens from the far-Left who deem the rights of criminals to be more important than the safety of Americans. Perhaps this an example of Obama finally using common sense, better yet turning a deaf ear to most of those in the loony bin who wanted Billary for President instead of him.
Three announcements on Friday had rights advocates and lawyers questioning whether the Obama administration was continuing the policies of George W. Bush, which provoked outrage around the world.
A Pentagon report on the Guantanamo detention camp, which was ordered by Obama, drew a hail of fire for claiming that conditions for inmates are in line with Geneva Conventions and other legal obligations.
The report's conclusion contrasted sharply with claims made by lawyers who regularly visit detainees at the remote prison at a US Naval base in Cuba.
