Someone tell me again about the great morality of Obama on Guantanamo

And then the wheels came off the Moral Authority Express. It turned out instead of bringing enemy combatants to Guantanamo, where detainees are well-fed and have access to attorneys, Obama has been sending them to a disease-ridden hell-on-earth in Somalia. And the Obama administration began urging the Supreme Court to ignore the detainees’ appeals. And now it seems those periodic review boards were–what would the president call them? Just words:
The Obama administration has begun limiting the legal rights of terror suspects held at the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba, telling a federal judge Tuesday the government alone should decide when the prisoners deserve regular access to their counsel.


And, just to add to the fun, more returns from Holder's genius work with ATF and FBI and DHS and every other alphabet agency stupid enough and politically greedy enough to get tied into Gunwalker:
Drug cartel operatives used weapons from Operation Fast and Furious in a failed attempt to assassinate a high-ranking Mexican law enforcement official, the El Paso Times reports in an article that follows up on an initial report from Breitbart News’ Mary Chastain.

The gun — which “was seized in Tijuana in connection with a drug cartel’s conspiracy to kill the police chief of Tijuana, Baja California, who later became the Ju├írez police chief” — is tied to Fast and Furious.

To AG Holder and all the other clowns: just how many bodies can be laid at your feet in this mess(so far)?
And do you give a damn?

Clearly they don't give a damn. The real question is, can we, through the rule of law, make them give a damn so that justice may be served?
