At long last the United States of America has started back on the road to decency.
US President Barack Obama has ordered the closure of the Guantanamo Bay prison camp as well as all overseas CIA detention centres for terror suspects.
Signing the orders, Mr Obama said the US would continue to fight terror, but maintain “our values and our ideals”.
He also ordered a review of military trials for terror suspects and a ban on harsh interrogation methods. [source: the BBC]
It really is about time, but still, well done President Obama. Soon the US may once again be able to hold its head up high on the world stage.
