When Cooler Heads Prevail

Mr. Pyrrhus, Call Your Lawyer – June 30, 2006 – The New York Sun

This article is probably the most lucid discussion I have seen on the recent SCOTUS rulings regarding the Guantanamo detainees (as opposed to the giddy silliness displayed on shows like “SoftBall w/ Chris Matthews”.) The far left has done the exact same thing they accuse the Bush admin of when they assert that these detainees should basically have the same rights as US citizens or combatants that qualify for the protections of the Geneva convention. Since there is no authority establishing these detainees as either a. qual’d for treatment under Geneva or b. qual’d for rights as citizens, this discussion now moves …where? Wherever it doth go, the detainees will be staying right where they always have been – in Guantanamo purgatory.

I agree that the one good thing to come of this ruling may be to get Ted Kennedy and the rest of his cohorts to say exactly what should be done with Bin Laden’s driver. Care to opine, Ted?
