This Is Going To Sting

The prosecution was looking for a sentence of 30 years to life, and the tribunal gave Hamdan 6 months plus time served.

From CNN: Bin Laden driver sentenced to 5 ½ years

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (CNN) — Osama bin Laden’s former driver was sentenced to 66 months in prison Thursday after his conviction on charges of providing material support to al Qaeda.

Salim Hamdan, who has been imprisoned at the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay since 2002, has been credited with five years served.

At this point his lawyers may not appeal, because he only has 6 months left and will probably finish the sentence before an appeal will be heard. The problem is what happens to him after the end of the sentence – will he be released, and if he is, where will he be released to?

Cease and Desist!

Blue Dog Dems

When you have Raum Emanuel and Steny Hoyer in the House leadership, you get an increase in RePUPlicans, AKA “Blue Dog Democrats”. The effect of this is that you have the type of people running for office as Democrats who do not believe in the principles the Democratic Party is supposed to stand for, like respect and equal rights for all Americans.

John McKay reports on a Democratic candidate gay bashing in a Kansas race, while Mustang Bobby found anti-Semitism in a Tennessee campaign.

This is the Democratic Party of Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms. Do we really want to go back there?
