Cave, Cave, Cave
In a major but at this dispirited point less than shocking reversal, the Obama White House is set to announce that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, self-declared mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, will be tried at Guantanamo Bay, not in U.S. civilian court as they long claimed he would be. This, on the same day Obama launches his re-election campaign with a vague and gauzy ad showing regular people saying how we really have to work to elect him, because...uhh....just because. Sigh. Is this really the best we can do?
