Obama's Orders Leave Framework of Torture, Indefinite Detention Intact
By Tom Eley
While the media is portraying these orders as a repudiation of the detention and interrogation policies of the Bush administration, they actually change little.
They essentially represent a public relations effort to refurbish the image of the United States abroad after years of torture and extra-legal detentions and shield high-ranking American officials from potential criminal prosecution. #
Figures. Old boss same as the new boss? If President Obama doesn't do more than refurbish America by PR strategies, it will show very soon.
