It is a fascinating event - the prison at Guantanamo becoming the this-far-no-farther moment for the Bush administration - considering what else has transpired. A covert CIA agent was exposed, intelligence analysts were intimidated into delivering politically acceptable data, hundreds of laws were summarily ignored by way of "signing statements," the FISA courts were bypassed during surveillance of American citizens, activist groups with no terrorism ties were intimidated, and the invasion and occupation of a foreign country was undertaken under brazenly false premises. A lot of people have died, and a staggering amount of taxpayer money has been redirected into the coffers of companies with deep ties to the White House.

And it all will continue and escalate. And blatantly I should add. There is no check whatsoever on this regime. bush has "free run" with, pretty much, the planet.
