Video: Bush on Hamdan

Next stop: Congress.

Update: Andrew Cochran calls the decision “a huge political gift to President Bush.” He’s overstating it — unambiguously, the holding rolls back executive power and very possibly undercuts Bush on CIA interrogations and/or warrantless wiretaps — but there’s something to his logic. Read the post. Another tough spot for Congressional Democrats?

What is the problem with the press?
Can’t they understand Pres. Bush doesn’t have all the info yet?
At least he’s open about it, and hopefully Congress will be too.
It’s going to be interesting, to say the least.

I don’t buy Cochran’s argument at all. The only extended public fight the Administration is willing to wage is with it’s own base on immigration. Plus, the idea that any contrary bill on the detainees will get approval from the RINOs in the Senate is very unlikely imo.

Who is the Senator he’s talking about? I can’t find anything.

(D) Senator Jack Mihoff

Wish the Press loved him tender like they did the Japanese PM

He needs to pull a Bush Senior move and blow chunks on him.

IF I had any confidence in our Senate I would consider this to mearly be a bureaucratic snafu. We should be able to push through the congress a law to deal with these terrorists.

Apparently- [Justice] Stevens suggested that the administration would be best off trying Hamdan and others before regular military courts-martial trials. Now what is THAT all about?

Politically I see this as trouble for the liberals in Congress. Do they really want to push their Terrorist Bill of Rights in an election year? ;o)
