Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat. Això no vol dir que m'hagi jubilat de la xarxa, sinó que he passat el relleu a un altra bloc que segueix la mateixa línia del Nihil Obstat. Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

Obama rectifica i manté els tribunals militars de Bush

BBC:
President Barack Obama has announced he is to revive military trials for some detainees at Guantanamo Bay. However, in a statement he said legal rights for those facing the military commissions would be improved.  Mr Obama had halted the trials as one of his first acts on taking office in January, saying the US was entering a new era of respecting human rights.  The decision to revive the military trials has brought harsh criticism from some US civil liberties groups.  There are currently 240 detainees still at the US base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  On the campaign trail last year, Mr Obama had branded the military commissions "an enormous failure".  However, analysts say that although Mr Obama has condemned the Military Commissions Act, set up by his predecessor George W Bush, he has never ruled out revamping it.
