Under Bush, A Sentence isn’t Even a Sentence Anymore

In the completion of the first military commission, not trial, a man has been “sentenced” to five and a half years for the crime of driving Osama bin Laden’s car. I say “sentenced,” because the Bush administration asserts that the U.S. government actually doesn’t have to release him even when his sentence is complete.

A commission is not a trial, and its sentence is not a sentence. This is the Homeland. With a bloc of Democrats consistently joining the Republicans to form an authoritarian majority, who will usher the Homeland away?
