Berrigan writes: "Four years later, President Obama will again take the oath of office on a frigid January day. But this time, he will lack much of the heady 'hope and change' folderol. Very little has changed in terms of Guantanamo since Obama was elected the first time."

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Fool me once... Obama did not get my vote the second time.

Don't blame President Obama for Guantanamo still being open. It was Congress that kept him from closing it.

Fight this war at the level it can and should be fought -- Congress.
