Apparently Bush has actually recognised that Gitmo has done some damage to US reputation.
That's almost up there with getting him to admit that Global Warming exists (as opposed to Climate Change).
Check out the Washington Post article here
Good to see that he can actually admit when things haven't gone the way they planned.
Also I note with interest that there's been talk of the Afghanis held there being extradited back home. Presumably to face trials. Well, I hope so at least. According to Crikey (who linked to this article) an Afghani delegation declared they believed half of them were not guilty of serious crimes and should be let go - see the article here.
Maybe Junardi will be free at last, free at last, thank God almighty free at last.
Oh Crikey also highlighted Richard Ackland's SMH column on this - worth a read if pro or anti Gitmo - see here
Here's the coda; "Far from being grave, the charges are a fudge and any half-decent court would chuck them out. Only a military commission packed to the rafters with non-lawyer military officers could be expected to swallow them."
It seems the US supreme court may see it the same way and find the commissions unlawful. Will be interesting to see...
