Reuters – (Luke Baker) Exclusive: Lawyer says Guantanamo abuse worse since Obama: Abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay has worsened sharply since President Barack Obama took office as prison guards “get their kicks in” before the camp is closed, according to a lawyer who represents detainees. Abuses began to pick up in December after Obama was elected, human rights lawyer Ahmed Ghappour told Reuters. He cited beatings, the dislocation of limbs, spraying of pepper spray into closed cells, applying pepper spray to toilet paper and over-forcefeeding detainees who are on hunger strike.

    Have you seen this:Obama the new successor to Tony Blair"At last history is finally giving Tony Blair the credit he deserves, during a time when credit is hard to come by…"It gets better:"What one must conclude is that where Blair led others followed. The march by conservatives to the centre ground is not only apparent in this country but also in the USA. The reason why Tony Blair was able to achieve all this was by his policy of inclusion on political lines, not through the ideological pigeon holing that came before him. Barak Obama has realized this and that is why he wishes to follow the path trail blazed by Tony Blair that only by focusing on values and not ideologues will progress ever be achieved."…I can only conclude he's either:-Dim-Delusional-Blindingly good at satire
