To me the most troubling thing was his allowing of torture. It never crossed my mind that the US would resort to torture. Or keeping people detained without due process for years.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11084238

Am I missing something? Did Obama stop torturing people? NO

In other words, it was the position of the Obama administration that even though the Supreme Court had found a constitutional right for detainees to challenge their confinement, detainees had no constitutional right not to be tortured while in confinement. The Obama administration also insisted that it was not sufficiently clear that the Constitution prohibited torture of aliens, and so a reasonable officer would not have concluded that plaintiffs here possessed Fifth and Eighth Amendment rights while they were detained at Guantánamo.
