What will come of those military tribunals?

Questions continue to be raised about the constitutionality of it all, and it looks [to me] like the media reports haven't given us the full picture regarding precedents. Do they EVER give us the full picture? It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

Bush has no authority to try anyone involved in 911 in military tribunals

Perhaps Bush is courting the American voter? The idea of swift justice for terrorists does have some appeal. As to the Constitutionality, this is a difficult matter to judge. I realize giving Bush the benefit of reasonable doubt is trying, particularly for our more liberal members. For me, the jury is still out. For now, I'm willing to keep an open mind and consider the evidence from both sides of the debate.

I hope you're sitting down, Ken, because I agree with everything you said. It will be INTERESTING to see how the courts handle this one [and I have NO doubt that it will end up at the door of the Supremes.]
