Military tribunals: The difference between Bush and Obama

Bush was wrong, but honest.

Obama is wrong, but misstated his intent.

"President Barack Obama will restart Bush-era military tribunals for a small number of Guantanamo detainees, reviving a fiercely disputed trial system he once denounced . . . "

Obama never promised to reform the military tribunal system. He promised to abolish it.
