Obama to indefinitely imprison detainees without charges

I usually don’t get political on my blog but I read an article that expressed many things I’ve been thinking about over the past year and I just can’t hold back any longer.  I’ve always found it disgusting that our country is detaining suspected terrorists without trial for years at a time. It’s a practice diametrically opposed to the principles our nation was founded upon and is currently trying to establish in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Scotty and I have had many long conversations on the topic and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and we have some pretty major disagreements – these are topics that get people riled up.  The following link will take you to one of the best articles/editorials I’ve read on the subject.  I would highly encourage you to read it – no matter where you stand on the issue.  It’s informative and I think the author, Glenn Greenwald, makes some excellent points.
