The dems and those on the left on A2K screamed bloody murder when the Bush admin argued that they could hold suspected terrorists as war criminals without trial.
Now, the Obama admin is saying the exact same thing and nobody seems to be complaining.
Why is that?
Reporting from Washington -- Harvard Law Dean Elena Kagan, President Obama's choice to represent his administration before the Supreme Court, told a key Republican senator Tuesday that she believed the government could hold suspected terrorists without trial as war prisoners.
She echoed comments by Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. during his confirmation hearing last month. Both agreed that the United States was at war with Al Qaeda and suggested the law of war allows the government to capture and hold alleged terrorists without charges.
