A Comeuppance on Gitmo

Where does George W. Bush go to get his apology? The prior statements of Obama and his top officials on Gitmo and the commissions are an embarrassing farrago of amateurish, self-righteous posturing — tripe more fit for the opinion columns of a student newspaper than for the counsels of government.

Sen. Obama maintained that we “compromised our most precious values” in setting up “the detention cells of Guantanamo”; that Gitmo and the military commissions represent “a legal framework that does not work”; and that Gitmo is a terrorist recruiting tool. It is to this ineffectual, terrorist-recruiting system that violates everything we hold dear that President Obama now looks for swift justice in the matter of KSM.
