More Honeymoon Heartache - Gitmo Judge to Preznit: We Think We'll Just Go Ahead with the Trials and Shit

This particular trial involving one of the bastards accused of helping to plan the bombing of the USS Cole that killed 17 sailors and wounded 50 more.

The decision throws into some disarray the administration's efforts to buy time to review individual detainee cases as part of its plan to close the U.S. military prison at the Guantanamo naval base in Cuba. The Pentagon may now be forced to temporarily withdraw the charges against Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi citizen of Yemeni descent.

No 120 day suspension for you, Obama!

Spokesdork Robert Gibbs, who makes Scott McLellan sound like Kenneth Branagh in Henry V, offers up the White House response:

We just learned of the ruling here . . . and we are consulting with the Pentagon and the Department of Justice to explore our options in that case," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said. Asked at a news briefing whether the decision would hamper the administration's ability to evaluate the cases of Guantanamo detainees, Gibbs replied: "No. Not at all."

Ability unhampered. Evaluate away!
