Obama: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will get a "full military trial"

Check out the video here.

So, what happened? What changed? Is it "Eric Holder is acting alone" or some other such nonsense again? Keep in mind that

... the current special military tribunals were created by the 2006 Military Commissions Act, which was adopted with bipartisan Congressional support after the Supreme Court's Hamdan decision obliged the executive and legislative branches to approve a detailed plan to prosecute the illegal "enemy combatants" captured since 9/11. (Source.)

Support, which it seems, included Obama.

But that's OK. Nonsense like this virtually ensures that The Messiah will be a one-termer (see here, for example), and the country will be better off (safer, IOW) for it.

Americans have a short attention span. It will take constant reminding of things like this, and like "Afghanistan is a war of necessity and Iraq caused us to take our eyes off the ball", to help them remember.

Otherwise, if the economy's good, he gets reelected.

I feel like you could probably teach a class on how to make a great blog. This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue. Youve made it possible for people to connect. Good for you, because not that many people know what theyre doing.
