Change For The Better Under Obama? – Perhaps Not

Just read a stomach-turning account of the restraint practices which the guards get up to in Guantanamo. Obama has signed an order for the closure of the Guantanamo facility, yet it seems that the brutality taking place there has been ramping up since the start of the year. Almost as if the guards want get in an extra-large portion of sadistic jollies before shutdown.

    The fact that he’s decided not to release pictures relating to torture at Abu Ghraib only leads people to imagine just how bad they must be if he doesn’t want them released, and people can imagine a lot. I have a feeling those pictures might turn out to be the political equivalent of a hammer to the back of a steer’s head in the slaughterhouse, if some of the stories floating around the net are true.
