"Git Outta Here"

"Git Outta Here"


The story you've all been waiting for:

AMERICA has been waiting these couple of weeks since now-President Barack Obama arrived back in the nation's capital, and finally that "change" that the new commander in chief and supporters keep talking about made its grand entrance on center stage yesterday.

With three bold strokes of the pen and a "there you go," Obama signed orders to close the controversial prison camp for alleged terrorists at the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba within a year, and to end secret CIA jailings, assuring the world that "we don't torture."

Just two days into the 44th presidency, Obama's matching orders were the most dramatic change from the anti-terrorism policies of his predecessor, George W. Bush, that so divided the nation and alienated much of world opinion.

Have a great football-free and torture-free weekend, and I'll see you on Sunday.
