Strong opinions, weakly held

Obama on torture

Barack Obama stated unequivocally that he will close Guantanamo and put a stop to torture on 60 Minutes last night. Of course, our current President has said any number of times that the US “does not torture,” but I’ll give Obama the benefit of the doubt for now that he is using the accepted definition of the word torture rather than the made-up one that the Bush administration has tried to foist upon us.


  1. When they say they intend to “close Guantánamo” do they mean the detention facility only, or the whole Navy base–i.e. get our military out of Cuba?

  2. I would assume just the prison.
