“The Obama administration is preparing to revive the system of military commissions established at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, under new rules that would offer terrorism suspects greater legal protections, government officials said.”
Really, “greater legal protections”??? As Andy McCarthy explains, not really:
The Obama commissions will be, in every material way, exactly the same as the Bush Commissions: they will allow the trial of terrorism suspects in a setting that favors the government and protects classified information, and they will be criticized – perhaps not quite as sharply, but sharply – by the same hard Lefties that Obama and Holder were courting during the campaign.
Again, these clowns are something else.
