Bush finally finds fault with his Guantanamo policies.

Apparently President Bush now believes that his POW policies are seen as harmful and a betrayal of American values. You know your poll ratings suck when you have to launch a major PR campaign against yourself in order to rebuild your image.

"I'd like to close Guantanamo, but I also recognize that we're holding some people there that are darn dangerous and that we better have a plan to deal with them in our courts."

What a revolutionary policy that would be, eh? I guess you'd have to, say, charge them with a crime, allow them access to lawyers, and actually give their day in court, eh?!

Of course, we'll obviously need to have a plan in place to deal with something so daunting. Is it just me, or does having "a plan" in place to "deal with them" seem a bit like saying that we either need a kangaroo court or a way to still detain them, should they be found innocent?

I'm sure there will be some kind of tenative plan in place in a decade or two, however... so, what about those secret CIA detention facilities too, Bush? Are you willing to do what is right, or merely what is popular?
