The Education of Barack Obama

The Washington Times reports:

The Obama administration, which refuses to send terrorism suspects to the detention center at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, on Wednesday defended its decision to interrogate a detainee for two months aboard a U.S. Navy ship, outside the reach of American law.

“He was detained lawfully, under the law of war, aboard a Navy ship until his transfer to the U.S. for prosecution,” presidential spokesman Jay Carney said.

It’s easy to preen on the campaign trail, but things look different when you’re responsible for our nation’s safety. He would do better to admit he was wrong, rather than going through contortions to do his off-shore interrogations somewhere other than Guantanamo, but I don’t think he has it in him.
