Sunday, Jun 28 Update: AFP is now reporting that "The White House dismissed reports that it has drafted an executive order allowing indefinite detention in the United States of some of the top terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay."
The uproar must have been very loud and clear. If you hold a person indefinitely without bringing him to trial, Barack Obama and his administration would be violating the constitution of the United States. It would be an impeachable offense.

He will be another mediocre president in the same mold as Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson and Bill Clinton.
