Lame Analysis

A quick sweep of the media shows how "experts" are spinning the Gitmo story, saying Al Qaeda really doesn't care that much that it's still open.

The fact that two American presidents wanted it closed (Bush too) is not considered important. Defiance of presidents, of voters -- basically insurrection -- is really nothing new.

Campaign promises get broken all the time, what's the big deal?

Telling Americans how to think and not to think seems to be the primary business of a lot of loser "counter-terrorists" these days. Lots of factoids. Lots of anonymous know-it-alls.

Reassurances that "Al Qaeda doesn't care, so it's OK to leave Gitmo open" is a cheerless Orwellian message. I'm glad I'm not sending it.
