In an effort to review the military-trial process in Guantánamo Bay, one of Obama’s first orders in office was to halt all ongoing trials. He may, in the future, elect to subject the prisoners there (some who have been held since 2001) to criminal trials. There’s probably no correct solution to this lingering problem, but Obama’s kept his promise to try to find it right away. [WP]
I’m going to spend the next year as a private citizen, but I do indeed intend to run for office again. I’m not sure for what, and I am not exactly certain when. I need to take a nap. But once I do, I’m planning to get back into the ring.
