Obama legal advisor Laurence Tribe, on the development of immediate plans to close Guantanamo and try its prisoners on American soil:
"We can't put people in a dungeon forever without processing whether they deserve to be there."
..."In reality and symbolically, the idea that we have people in legal black holes is an extremely serious black mark... It has to be dealt with."
That sounds about right.
