The more things change, the more they stay the same: Obama to restart Gitmo military trials

Although, upon entering office, Pres. Obama signed an executive order to close Gitmo by January 2010, it is not only still open but Obama has also decided to resume "prosecutions under the military commission system."  As Prof. Reynolds might say, so much for that fierce moral urgency of change.

TPM has the full text of the executive order here.  The Hill also has a story on this.
