Habeas Whatever

"It may be necessary temporarily to accept a lesser evil, but one must never label a necessary evil as good."
- Margaret Mead

bush fuckFor years and years and years the five men accused of planning the 9-11 attacks have been held at Guantanamo and only now, just weeks before Bush slinks out of Washington on his little mountain bike, have they decided to plead guilty.

Doesn't the timing smell a bit odd to you, in that "Marvin Bush, younger brother of George, just happened to be in charge of security of the World Trade Towers on 9-11, while former president George Herbert Walker Bush just happened to be having lunch in New York City with a Saudi prince, also on 9-11" kind of way? Couldn't our government have prosecuted these cases a long time ago?

If Khalid Sheik Mohammad and his pals are culpable then quit pussyfooting around and put them on trial, a real trial, just as Clinton put Sheikh Omar Abdul-Ramen on trial for the World Trade Center attacks in 1993.

Quick. Clean. Justice prevails. Hurray for the red, white and blue. USA! USA! USA!

However, if they're innocent, let 'em go, just as the Bush administration has already released hundreds of other foreign nationals from Guantanamo basically without comment. Men who were simply released and sent home to start their ruined lives over again.

Oops! But not sorry. Better luck next time, old bean.

This mass guilty plea is an obvious Devil's Bargain as they're betting on being executed in the exact way that will earn them a one-way ticket to Martyrville.

But dey don't know da Bushies vewwy well, do dey?

What this sudden rush to judgement is really all about is so that Bush can beat his chest and say "We got 'em! They plead guilty! I win! Put that in yer his'try book thing and smoke it."

What a dick.

It's all for naught, though, as legal procedures will keep them safe and snug in their little island home until Mr. Obama rearranges the furniture at 1600 Pennsylvania and then we'll see some real justice... hopefully about the same time Mr. Bush's legal woes begin.
