PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA FOLLOWS THROUGH ON PROMISE BY CLOSING GUANTANAMO BAY PRISON!

THE WORK AT THE WHITE HOUSE HAS BEGUN!

President Obama signs a series of executive orders closing Guantanamo Bay detention center, reviewing military trials of terror suspects and banning the harshest interrogation methods.

In signing the order on interrogation, the president says it not only fulfills a campaign promise but underscores a position “that dates back to our founding fathers that we are willing to observe core standards of conduct not just when it is easy but when it’s hard.”

He says the orders will send a signal worldwide that the United States is “not going to continue with a false choice between our safety and our ideals.”
