Re: Good News about Gitmo …?

Dan, I understand it is bad news about Gitmo, masquerading as good news. The administration apparently not only dodged questions about trying KSM and his fellow 9/11 plotters; the White House briefers stressed that the president is still committed to using civilian courts for the trials of enemy combatants, and to pressing Congress to end restrictions on bringing the enemy combatants here for trial.

This is just a song-and-dance to try to skirt the issue until the 2012 elections are over. We are given the illusion of movement on commissions, but nothing really happens so the Lefties are happy.
