"President Obama yesterday eliminated the most controversial tools employed by his predecessor against terrorism suspects... Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military’s Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration’s lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.
It’s worth emphasizing again here these steps Obama’s taking effectively limit his own power. That’s extraordinary."
