Obama has done a good job in deciding which of Bush`s policies are worth keeping. He`s thrown the intel gathering practices away and good for him for doing so. They were a blight on our shining moral reputation. I`m happy that he`s revealing all of the Bush admin dirty laundry by publicizing all the interrogation procedures and whatnot, and on the same note, I`m glad he`s not prosecuting the people responsible for carrying out the orders. When the Bush administration handled Abu Ghraib, they for the most part only disciplined the lowest rung of the heirarchy, and left the order givers in his cabinet and highest ranks unscathed. I hope Obama follows through on a moral and transparent administration. I have no opposition to fighting the wars we`re already engaged in, though I would object to initiating a war on a third front. The piracy issue is hardly a war, so that can be an exception. I only hope any action Obama engages in follows established rules as best as possible. We`re the most moral nation on the planet, and we have to lead by example. I`ve got immense faith that Obama can turn the country around.
