Just to balance the multiple gay-related threads, here an update on Guantanamo.
Judge: Algerian prisoners held in Guantanamo must be freed
Ruling by US judge has far reaching implications for the remaining detainees at the base in Cuba
If I expect anything from the Obama administration, it is the end of extraordinary renditions (aka kidnappings) from foreign soil, detention without trial, military tribunals using secret evidence and finally to the travesty that is Guantanamo. I hope the above is a sign that the US is redeeming itself as the champion of human rights it used to be.
