That is what the pentagon is telling everyone at least…
Bin Laden’s driver, Salim Hamdan, was made famous in the pile of crap known as Hamdan V. Rumsfeld. You know, the case where “Justice” Stevens and the crap pack, as I shall now call them, decided they knew how to run a war better than the executive (which is definitely absolutely constitutional and consistent for them to do, by the way). And, accordingly, that terrorists should be coddled and extended the same legal rights as citizens. Cool, huh?
And now Hamdan is, on the eve of his release, Hamdan is being sent to Yemen to serve out his pathetically short 66 month sentence. And, of course, thats 66 months minus time served which gives him almost exactly one month left to serve. But, hey, he only helped facilitate the most horrific terrorist attack in history.
Oddly enough, though, I think he may just miss Guantanamo. After all, the terrorist held there now have gameboys, art classes, and “movie nights”. There is even an “Arab-American cultural advisor” (why the hell is there an “Arab-American cultural advisor”?!!?!?). Honestly, the place sounds about a thousand times more enjoyable than the vast majority of middle-eastern countries. I’d be sad to leave if I was him.
Oh, I almost forgot, make sure you don’t miss the passive agressiveness of the BBC on this one:
“The US has always argued it can detain such people indefinitely, as long as its so-called war on terror continues.”
“so-called”, I guess those terrorists are only in our imagination?
UPDATE: Hot Air eventually weighed in on this…
