Obama’s all-powerful, unfailing, super cereal executive orders

without comments

From an executive order dated January 20, 2009:

Sec. 3. Closure of Detention Facilities at Guantánamo. The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than 1 year from the date of this order. If any individuals covered by this order remain in detention at Guantánamo at the time of closure of those detention facilities, they shall be returned to their home country, released, transferred to a third country, or transferred to another United States detention facility in a manner consistent with law and the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States.

I am glad Obama realized the error of this order when he was (presumably) confronted with reality– and that the executive order has not typically been employed to rule by fiat– but maybe Bart Stupak should have taken that into account before selling his soul for an executive order.
