  •  Announce closing Guantanmo in Inaugural Address (8+ / 0-)

    I believe that Obama should announce the closing of Guantanamo and the secret prisons scattered all over the world in his inaugural address.

    He should announce that all prisoners are being pulled into a legal process that adheres to our Constitution, Bill of Rights, the Geneva Convention, and our absolute adherence to due process.

    For me this is the lynch pin and the most central issue, for it represents how far the Bush and Cheney regime took this nation away from the fundamental principle that was its strength, the rule of law.

    I will not feel that right has triumphed and that this nation is back on the right track unless this is done, and done immediately.

    If it is not done, then we remain what Bush and Cheney and his gang of criminals made us: a nation committing war crimes, and destroying the Constitution and rule of law domestically.
