Closing of Guantanomo, suspension of trials; this has many on the right seeing the unmasking of Obama as a "radical leftist" without regard for "the safety of our nation". The times are changing, and Obama is poised and decisive , offering no apologies. Europe on the whole is pleased with this first move. The trail of Omar Khadr, arrested at age 15 for attacking a US soldier with a grenade, has been suspended. This marks a closing of the Bush/Chenery era, and a shift toward concern for human rights. For the left, progress. To the right, betrayal and treason.
