I mean who would have thought?
But, dayum. Can the President be more incompetent?
Agreed - military tribunals are the right forum. And Guantanamo is set up for this forum. Leave all of them at Gitmo and out of the US.
NIce to know HOlder has a couple of brain cells that actually work. After a little bad PR of course.
I wonder when the left will chime in?
If these terrorist had of been prisoners in any other place in the world, they would have already been tried, convicted and either shot or hung. We must appear to be pretty silly to the other countries of the world - especially to the folks of the Middle East.
my old Beirut buddy Tom Friedman just weighed in on this very subject on "Morning Joe".... and I tend to agree with him. I would have preferred to have the trials out under the bright lights so the world could see we weren't afraid of anything, but clearly, Americans as a whole, and republicans in particular, are sooooo scared of arab extremists, and made that fear so clearly manifest, that their terrified, knee rattling uproar was a distraction. At this point, I say, try him and then fry him. Time to move on, and deal with however such cowardly responses embolden our enemies later.
So any guess how long it will be before President Bozo decides, after thinking real hard about how much he wants a Big Mac and a cigarette, that the military tribunals should be held in Guantanamo?

"If this stunning reversal comes to pass, President Obama will deal a death blow to his own Justice Department, not to mention American values."
