July 29, 2008, Think Too Much

Candace sends along a note about this item, a mention from the opening remarks at Gitmo of the prosecutor on the trial of Hitler's chauffeur OBL's driver and auto mechanic, Salim Hamdan.

"If they hadn't shot down the fourth plane it would've hit the dome," Stone, a Navy officer, said in his opening remarks.

Draw your own conclusions; Candace asks "slip or mistake?" It's one or the other. I thought the "let's roll" explanation had to be preserved at all costs; apparently, securing a show-trial conviction of a bit player may be more important.

Stay tuned, and try not to "Think Too Much."


I was struck by the assessment from the Amnesty International guy in the NY Times that "the proceedings were more of a replica of a trial than a real one."

Catches something. Must be mind bending for observers.
