Civil rights campaigners were thrilled when a constitutional lawyer entered the White House, expecting Barack Obama would restore the rights they felt had been eroded during George W. Bush’s presidency.
This would include closing the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay and seeking a better way to handle detainees accused of terrorism.
Once entering the White House, however, Mr. Obama was faced with having to deal with the realities of the fight against terrorism and keeping Americans safe.
