3. More duplicity by Obama...

Some here apparently believe torture isn't still going on under Obama, in some manner such as rendition etc.

Chris Hedges sued Pres. Obama for for the part of the NDAA that allows American citizens to be arrested and held without trial until the end of hostilities in the GWOT, which is essentially forever.

He won, initially, but the Obama administration appealed and won. Hedges says his lawyers believe that the only reason the Obama admin. was so frantic to get the original decision overturned is that they are already detaining American citizens at black sites around the world.

Not that they'd worry about international law, anyway.
