Significant Changes to Bush-Era Military Commissions Signed Into Law

Yana Kunichoff, Truthout: "President Barack Obama signed a Defense Department spending bill into law Wednesday, which includes a provision that will change the way military commissions are structured. Human rights organizations and legal advocacy groups believe these controversial Bush-Era commissions primarily deny defendants the protections that federal courts provide and have responded with disappointment to their inclusion in defense legislation by a president who, during his presidential campaign, was quoted as saying he would 'reject the Military Commissions Act.'

Military Commissions Revived: Don't Do It, Mr. President!

Andy Worthington, Truthout: "I was so delighted that the Defense Authorization Act, signed into law by President Obama on Wednesday, included a hard-won concession that the administration can transfer prisoners from Guantanamo to the mainland to face trials (even though the legislation still bears the fingerprints of interfering lawmakers, and still, scandalously, prevents any innocent man from being rehoused in the country that falsely imprisoned him) that I overlooked two other distressing facts."
