What did the Supreme Court really say? What does it really mean politically?
Mark Davis is a local talk radio host (WBAP) and he just posted this on RCP:
"Democrats and detainees may be chortling with glee for the moment, but they may soon get a dose of the danger of getting what you wish for.
Guantanamo's "guests" may now find themselves in an extended Cuban limbo, eligible for neither a tribunal nor immediate release.
And the President's enemies on Capitol Hill may not welcome another vote-- even closer to election day-- which will provide further evidence that they lack the seriousness to be trusted on the war in the first place."
We are now going to force Democrats to take a position on GITMO.
No more free ride. It's time for a "Yes or No" vote.
Also, how many Democrats agree with Justice Stevens that terrorists are covered by the Geneva Convention? My guess is that most Democrats will find this portion of the decision as silly as I did.
Our side always wins when Democrats have to vote. We will soon be voting.
