Obama's detentions with no trial

Here's columnist Charles Krauthammer expressing how pleased he is at Obama's decision to detain alleged terrorists indefinitely. As Andy K. points out, "The other 'conservatives' (Hannity, Limbaugh, Coulter, O'Reilly) are too stupid to understand the profound similarities between the Bush war on terror and the Obama war on terror."

During the '08 campaign, Obama fans were constantly pointing out his moving oratory prowess. Krauthammer writes, "As in his rhetorically brilliant national-security speech yesterday claiming to have undone Bush's moral travesties, the military commissions flip-flop is accompanied by the usual Obama three-step: (a) excoriate the Bush policy, (b) ostentatiously unveil cosmetic changes, (c) adopt the Bush policy."
