The Corner

The one and only.

Correction on Boumediene Post


Last Thursday, in a post about the ordered release of five Algerian detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, I erroneously identified the judge who issued the order, Richard Leon, as “a Bush 41 appointee.” In fact, he was appointed to the bench by the current President Bush (Bush 43). I thank the careful Corner readers who noticed the error — and I apologize for not getting to their e-mails earlier. (Been away from home for a lot of the past two weeks, so thankfully there was lots of family and very little e-mail this weekend.)
