So? - good question.
There is no real doubt in our minds that the bast*** needed to be caught cornered and killed.
But this doesn’t play to “our minds,” it plays to the disenchanted liberal trash MSM, and to other left wing voting blocks who would all, every one, be rushing to condemn Bush, et. al, for doing anything like this.
While the drumbeat was 24/7 365 against Bush for GITMO, that drum has fallen eerily silent now that Hussein is calling the shots and GITMO is still open for business.
This will stick... the bright gloss of the Left’s lofty hopes is tarnished and gone, and the energy factor is diminished and dimmed.
