A Victory at Guantanamo

Lauran Rozen, in her excellent blog War and Piece, passes on a report from the Guardian of the dismissal by a military judge of charges against a Guantanamo prisoner because the prisoner had been designated an “enemy combatant” not an “unlawful enemy combatant” as required by the “the Military Commissions Act adopted by the US Congress in 2006.” I should note the dismissal was “without prejudice, so I believe prosecutors are at liberty to try again.

I find the comment from one of Ms. Rozen’s readers, an Air Force Veteran, to be particularly interesting. He reads the dismissal as a sing of a revolt amongst the professional military against the illegal actions of the Bush administration.
