The Wall Street Journal:

The Obama administration said Tuesday it could continue to imprison non-U.S. citizens indefinitely even if they have been acquitted of terrorism charges by a U.S. military commission.

There have been many things where I've given the Obama administration a little slack, with the hope — often rewarded — that it's doing some subtle Barack-Rahm rope-a-dope. This is not one of those times. There is no justification for this.

I offer dday at Digby's Hullabaloo and Greenwald at Salon, because I'm without words.
