This story is based on President Bush's version of "It depends on what is is." The legal intrepretation of the court order was targeted at those prisoners at Guantanamo. They plan to argue that this guy wasn't a part of that order. He is there now. This guy's testimony is vital to understanding the inner workings of Al Qaeda. He implicated several people on video tape and that tape is vital to understanding and winning the war on terror. This is an act of treason. A transcript can be redacted or edited to protect good people guilty. On face value, this supports impeachment. The Justice Department has been in Bush's lap since John Ashcroft got sick. Shame on anyone not supporting the search for the truth.

This is a chance for Mukasey to distinguish himself from his predecessor. The legeslative and the executive branch can work together to assure that the right things were done and correct what's wrong, or it can be be resolved otherwise.
