Bidet minus oophah.

Critics say he is looking for excuses. …

Originally posted by Washington Post:

President Obama's plans to close the military Gitmo were set back when security officials (barred until the inauguration from examining classified material on the detainees) discovered that there were no comprehensive case files on many of them.

They found that information is "scattered throughout the executive branch," a senior administration official said. Obama ordered the prison closed in a year and a Cabinet-level panel will have to spend weeks, perhaps months scouring the federal government in search of relevant material.

Former Bush administration officials agreed that the files are incomplete and that no single government entity was charged with pulling together all the facts and the range of options for each prisoner. They said that the CIA and other intelligence agencies were reluctant to share information and that the Bush administration's focus on detention and interrogation made preparation of viable prosecutions a far lower priority.

But other former officials took issue with the criticism and suggested that the new team has begun to appreciate the complexity and dangers of the issue and is looking for excuses.

I'd suggest they had found one. Wouldn't you?

As for vacillation; why did the Bush admin need to delay matters in the first place? It was hardly good politics was it? And you can't tell me anyone in that regime was hell bent on finding truth. Quite the reverse.

  1. While I am all in favour of poking dangerous things with sticks to see if they are still alive, I don't see the need for making it a sharp one.Unless there happens to be one handy of course. I'm all in favour of picking up discarded weapons, left strewn about.And if the beast shows signs of life I wouldn't complain overmuch if you saw the need use it to belabour it about the head a bit while you got the mark of it.
