I just can't stop laughing about this.  Of course they realize it's the best thing to do, that's why it was being done IN THE FIRST PLACE.

The Obama administration is moving toward reviving the military commission system for prosecuting Guantánamo detainees,which was a target of critics during the Bush administration, including Mr. Obama himself.
....

Anthony D. Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said that Mr. Obama had pledged to return the country to the rule of law and that “continuing with the military commission system would be a retreat from that promise.”

Gabor Rona, the international legal director of Human Rights First, said military commissions would only be necessary if the administration wanted to assure convictions that might not otherwise be certain.

“The administration is making a huge mistake,” Mr. Rona said, “if they believe getting convictions through suspect methods is more valuable than letting justice take its course.”


For everyone that bought his BS...
