Obama's Lawless Authorization of Military Commissions Injustice - by Stephen Lendman

On March 7, New York Times writers Scott Shane and Mark Landler headlined, "Obama Clears Way for Guantanamo Trials," saying:

By Executive Order (EO), Obama authorized their use "with revamped procedures but implicitly admitt(ed) the failure of his pledge to close the prison camp."

Since taking office, Obama broke every important pledge he made with regard to: 

-- war and peace;

-- fixing the economy;

-- helping beleaguered homeowners;

-- supporting organized labor;

-- helping working Americans, especially those most vulnerable, disadvantaged, and harmed by economic crisis;

-- a public option included in health care reform;

-- Net Neutrality;
