Shorter Translation of Obama's Speech on Counter-Intel, Gitmo and GWOT

David Weigel at Slate broke it down pretty succinctly, but I can bring it down to one sentence.

"We as a nation are not going to reclaim our moral standing in the world until we stop listening to the fearmongers and we start focusing on pragmatic resolutions such as upholding our international treaties, closing down overseas detention cells used to hide our transgressions, respecting the rule of law to free the innocent and convict those found guilty in open courts, improving our intel to locate and isolate those who promote terrorism across the globe, and getting Congress to do the job IT has to do by passing the legislation our nation needs to get this all done."

Okay, it's a bit wordy but I promised to get it down into one sentence.
