The Obama administration is moving toward reviving the military commission system for prosecuting Guantánamo detainees, which was a target of critics during the Bush administration, including Mr. Obama himself...Wow, I am so so so surprised.
“The more they look at it,” said one official, “the more commissions don’t look as bad as they did on Jan. 20.”
The reason they don't look "as bad" as they did before inauguration day is because when your opponent is the epitome of evil, everything he does is bad and done for bad reasons. Now that it's your guy who faces the same problem*, I guess he can offer up the same solution, but it will be a good thing done for a good reason.
After all, intention is all that matters, right?
* The inevitable problem that arises from bringing the world's criminals back to your own soil.
