Another Obama Flip Flop

It’s official: Military tribunals will return, says Obama
President Barack Obama has revived Bush-era military tribunals for top Guantanamo Bay terror suspects that he once branded a “failure,” but proposed new rules on evidence and detainee rights.

Rights campaigners reacted angrily, warning the move would prolong the “injustice” of the war on terror camp, days after Obama dismayed some backers by deciding to oppose the release of photos of Iraq and Afghan prison abuses.

“This is the best way to protect our country, while upholding our deeply-held values,” Obama said in a written statement Friday, outlining his reasoning and a set of reforms to the military commissions.
Sounds like Dick got to him.
