Watch: the political Left is gonna go all Mount St. Helens in three…two…one…

July 8, 2009

Um…maybe one more time: three…two…one…

Okay, maybe we start from five…four…three…

Huh. Not sure where all the outrage is. I’d have expected a press release from Sen. Franken’s office, at least.

Guantanamo Bay detainees who are acquitted by civil or military courts may still be imprisoned indefinitely if the government determines that they pose a national security threat, the Defense Department’s chief lawyer said yesterday.

“The question of what happens if there’s an acquittal is an interesting question — we talk about that often within the administration,” Pentagon general counsel Jeh Johnson said at a Senate hearing.
“If, for some reason, he’s not convicted for a lengthy prison sentence, then, as a matter of legal authority, I think it’s our view that we would have the ability to detain that person,” he said.

No, wait, Glenn Greenwald got a Memeorandum thread going. So, there, some Lefties are upset.
