The Center for Constitutional Rights has aptly blasted
President Obama for suspending the already carefully screened
repatriation of about 40 Yemeni detainees at Guantanamo as an
"unconscionable" act based "on politics, not facts." Even better, they
use Obama's own words, accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, against him.

"We lose ourselves when we compromise the very ideals that we
fight to defend. And we honor those ideals by upholding them not when
it's easy, but when it is hard."


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
