I’ll see your illegal detention and raise you a show trial

Not content to continue, and to continue to defend, the Bush administration’s unconstitutional practice of holding detainees indefinitely without trial, the Obama Defense Department has gone one horrific step further: claiming the right to hold indefinitely even people who have been acquitted of all charges.

I hope everyone who mocked those of us who criticized the Bush administration’s illegal and unconstitutional detention practices is happy now. We told you that if it wasn’t stopped it would only get worse. But, no, we were just “liberals” or “un-American” or “objectively pro-terrorist” “whiners” who didn’t understand the real problem, who didn’t want to do everything it took to keep our country safe. Or we were DFHs with Bush Derangement Syndrome. Or something.

Well, no, cheesemunches, you know what the real problem was? We were right and you were wrong. So now you get to shut up and let those of us who actually knew what we were talking about carry on the conversation … one main point of which is that Obama himself now has at least one foot firmly in war-criminal territory and shows no signs of reversing himself.
