That article blames the Defense Department, former Bushies, fear-mongers, scaredy cats, and everybody...but the WH.

The administration must be soooo proud of the NYT. Such good little soldiers....

Pinch is counting on a bailout because he's demonstrably proven he can't compete in the information world where Walter Durantys get exposed.

A different NYT article via Hot Air: LUN

[[[President Obama told human rights advocates at the White House on Wednesday that he was mulling the need for a �preventive detention� system that would establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried, two participants in the private session said.]]]

Preventive detention sounds soooo....Cheney...yet Cheney and Bush didn't do it.

Oh My!! What kind of monster has Cheney created? Is this turning into a pi**ing contest...

Look at the Wikipedia page, for this guy, Denbeaux, he has been flagged by the Courts twice for his flawed expertise in document analysis, He has no expertise in Islam, Salafism, probably has never read Doughty on the Quahtanis. He's been the source of possibly two dozen articles in the McClatchy
press.

[[a �preventive detention� system that would establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried]]

Cheney, Rove, Rush, Santelli, AIG executives, Chrysler senior bondholders, Carrie Prejean, federal lobbyists (not granted a waiver to work in the Obama administration)...and eventually, Jake Tapper.

Look at this cloying, self-indulgent
statement that DenBeaux, made in some hearing, back in 2007:

When I -- this is a personal beginning. After Rasul, my co- counsel, my co-author and my eldest son asked me what I thought about Guantanamo, and I'm ashamed to say that I said I hadn't thought much about it at all. He asked if I thought we had the right people there. And I replied we probably did. Then he asked whether my father, his grandfather, who was a chaplain with General Patton, would have believed that the United States Army, marching across Germany during World War II, could have accurately selected the 500 bad German civilians from all the rest. And I said, I'm sure he would not have believed that the Third Army could have made those distinctions in combat as it was moving along, and it wouldn't have bothered. But I said, my father also wouldn't have cared, because my father didn't believe that there were any good Germans during that period of time. And my son, Joshua, said, isn't that the whole point.
It goes downhill from there. In the LUN here's the rest of the folderall

Here's his profile from the Wooster alumni letter;

Selma, Alabama, 1965. Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, 2006. Different centuries, different countries—but the link between the two is significant for attorney Mark Denbeaux '65. He says he will never forget the 54-mile civil rights march that he and two other Wooster students joined. "Selma was an ugly and scary place. But it was also one of the most moving experiences in my life."

How do you get from civil rightsprotesters, which no one can object to, no Sharpton or
Mason comparisons here, to defending AQ. I guess it's time for another attempt at an AT submission

Here's a piece referencing one of the cases,
his testimony was excluded from U.S. v. Paul;

It's a rhetorical question, but why is it almost all these brave speaker 'of truth to power' like Krugman, Marshall, (Dowd is really too ridiculous to consider)now Denbeaux, as well as officials like
Armitage, Wilkerson, Scowcroft, Freeman, Wilson, have little truth to offer, and are more often than not, retainers to powerful
forces like the Saud family or their rivals in the Ilkwan tribes.

Just heard ABC's Ann Compton on the top of the hour radio news doing breathless compassion for Obama. Don't know what she said, as I immediately try to mentally tune her out, but she is the master at the breathless impassioned sentence. You've probably all heard her a Million times also but can't place her name or face. If she is that way in real life and not just when she is on the air, then if she was to simply say that she needed to go to the toilet, she would enunciate it with such poignant pathos that you'd feel a UN Human Rights Commission should be immediately convened just to investigate the urgency of the matter.

I suppose my question for Clarice or any of you guys who might know her is if she as full of S@#t in real life as she is on the radio?
