Terrific tribunals for terrible terrorists

The R’s have started calling the military commissions Bush wants “terrorist tribunals.” Subtle, huh? And alliterative. But appropriate: the phrase presumes guilt just like the commissions will.

I’m taking bets on how long it takes for Joe Lieberman to start using this Republican rhetorical device.

It occurs to me that I don’t know where people actually convicted by these kangaroo courts (that’s also alliterative) would be sent to serve their sentences. Back to Gitmo? Military prisons in the US?
