Guantánamo is planning for prison after Obama

GitmoMilitary leaders are thinking about whether they will need to put a wheelchair lift into their showcase communal prison three or four years from now, widen some some cell doors, add ramps for geriatric captives.

Not one of the 80 prisoners is now in a wheelchair and most are in their 30s or 40s. The oldest is 68.

The Army Chaplain Who Quit Over 'Unaccountable Killing' of Obama’s Secretive Drone Program

dronesAs a witness to the removal of fallen U.S. troops from Afghanistan, Army Chaplain Christopher John Antal can’t recall a time when that solemn ceremony wasn’t conducted without the presence of drones passing along the horizon.

(The bar had also offered $1 Fireball shots to anyone signing a petition against a state takeover sought by the governor.)
