Well, at Least We No Longer Disappear People to Secret Prisoners to be Tortured Anymore…

Is there any further refuge for the last Obama-holdouts who supported him, like I did, to get America past Bush-era abuses in civil liberties and execution of the war on terror?

If so, they maybe ought to read the expose by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation, about new black site prisons being set up around the world (this one in Somalia). Obama has not ended the practice – if anything, he has institutionalized it and added extra layers of secrecy and smokescreens. Glenn Greenwald zooms out.
