First U.S. War Crimes Trial Starts at Guantanamo: The Right Headline--The Wrong Plaintiff

When I first saw that headline I was very happy, for I thought that someone from this administration was going to be put on trail for war crimes committed at the base on Guantanamo Bay. Alas, it was not to be. Instead, Osama Bin Ladden's driver is being put on trail.

Instead of catching Osama, we instead put his driver on trial.

Another frightening tidbit of information about Guantanamo surfaced today, and that is Attorney General Mukasey asking, in essence, that Congress allow the U.S. to keep Gitmo open until then end of the War on Terror. I was actually surprised by his moderation, for I thought he was going to say we should wait until we win our War on Death.
