I heard on the radio that an appeals court has ruled that it is okay to prosecute Salim Ahmed Hamdan, a Yemeni who was Osama bin Laden's driver for "conspiracy to commit war crimes, including terrorism." The Bush Administration considers this a huge victory.
So, nearly seven years after a well-financed and well-trained group of men flew airplanes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the ground, slaughtering thousands of Americans, the best we can come up with is Osama bin Laden's driver? What's next? His barber? The guy who mows his lawn? His golf caddy?
We've shredded the constitution, become ensnared in a bloody, costly and unnecessary war (which is causing us to lose the necesssary war in Afghanistan). In the meantime, the Justice Department was busy slowing down the hiring process during critical times because they were trying to appoint lesser-qualified political hacks to the positions.
I swear to god, this administration must have people who stay up nights thinking of ways to screw up.
