Guantanamo and Wikileaks

We're likely to be hearing a lot over the next few days about the supposedly new information on Guantanamo prisoners that has been leaked to news sources - presumably from Wikileaks.

But I'd like to remind everyone that most of this information was available last May when Obama's Guantanamo Review Task Force released its report. I recall that almost no one (including the shouters on the left) paid much attention to the report. But I guess the subterfuge of a leaked report somehow makes all of this a big story today.

  1. It will now get a lot of traction, somewhat like the recent 'open mike' comment about the Republicans thinking people are stupid. I don't usually like technology (because I feel it doesn't like me[;)]), but I confess I'm glad that there is almost always a record of happenings nowadays. It makes it easier to highlight the lies; even if sometimes politicians can still wiggle around them in the eyes of their base, the truth might cause an independent or two to pause.
