what's going on here...

[yeah, i know i haven't done one in awhile, but this one is special]

In the second blow to the credibility of the Guantánamo legal process in a year, two different judges yesterday said the military tribunals did not have jurisdiction over detainees on the island.

and what does the White House have to say?
"We don't agree with the ruling on the military commissions," the White House spokesman, Tony Fratto, told reporters covering president Bush's visit to Prague.

"In no way does this decision affect the appropriateness of the military commission system."

of course, they're going to appeal it. The courts have no jurisdiction in the actions of the White House and its war on terror.

At the Democratic debate the other night, Wolf Blitzer asked if it was real or a bumper sticker topic. At this point, what difference does it make? It's like the story of the "boy who cried wolf." It's just that every couple of months the boy's handlers come out with something like the JFK plot in New York.

why do you think that is?

just asking...
