Indefinite Detention: If it starts at Guantanamo, where will it end?

From the "too good to be true" department, President Obama's promise in January to close Guantanamo Bay prison isn't turning out to be nearly as good as it sounded.  Now the president is talking about signing an executive order to authorize himself to detain 50-100 Guantánamo prisoners (up to about half the current population) indefinitely—without charges and without trials—on the basis of what he or others think they might do in the future if they are released.  That sounds a lot like what Guantánamo has been and is today.
