change

Two hours ago boston.com published an article about Obama, and the title was “Obama open to torture memos probe, prosecution”. The president explained in this article that he conceives prosecution against the employee within Bush administration, which ordered CIA to perform torture like apparent drowning, sleep loss and violence. Obama added that it is the Minister of Justice responsibility to decide if there should be any prosecution.
The president had the day before promised that there should be no judicial process against them, he said that these people has only lead orders to project their country. It seems to be an opinion he first shared with the earlier vice-president Dick Chaney, he also defended the hard questioning. According to Chaney it gave him valuable information on the road to stop new terrorist attacks against the USA.
But, Obama has changed his opinion. We already now that Obama’s keyword is Change, in the election he talked about change all the time, and I liked it. But I did not think he would change his opinion over a night. Suddenly he thought that USA had lost the moral compass when the torture was performed.
I think it is quite odd that Obama has apologized so much for USA’s earlier behaviour. Sure, I think that it is important that USA doesn’t appear like an arrogant country, but they shouldn’t be seemed like a weak, feeble-minded and apologizing country either.
I think Barack Obama has made the right desision. The Question according to me is if the methods lead to truthful information or it the people who were tortured confessed everything and just told them what they wanted to hear. Regardless if it was true or not, just to stop the suffering…

When I examined the source I found a number similar aricles in the Internet, with the same information. One of them was Walesonline.co.uk (link down below)

    I think your comments in this post are particularly good, and shows good evidence of critical thinking. What I’m missing is the source criticism, and possibly a clearer structure. Your language is good, but sometimes it becomes a little bit incoherent and you could make clearer links in sentences by using more linking words and signals.
