The New York Times reports that the Obama administration is considering reviving military tribunals to try the detainees at Guantanamo Bay. An anonymous administration official sums up:
“The more they look at it,” said one official, “the more commissions don’t look as bad as they did on Jan. 20.”
As Jules Crittenden notes, you can infer the administration’s embarrassment from the timing of the Friday afternoon leak.
I hope someone is keeping track of Obama’s many sub silentio ratifications of once-criticized Bush administration policies.
