Out: Land-Based Black Sites
In: Sea-Based Black Sites

As Instapundit snarks, contact the Nobel Prize committee to let them know they done good.

It's so absurd.

— Instead of sending suspected terrorists to Guantanamo Bay or secret CIA “black” sites for interrogation, the Obama administration is questioning terrorists for as long as it takes aboard US naval vessels.

And it’s doing it in a way that preserves the government’s ability to ultimately prosecute the suspects in civilian courts.

That’s the pattern emerging with the recent capture of Abu Anas al-Libi, one of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists, long-sought for his alleged role in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Africa. He was captured in a raid Saturday and is being held aboard the USS San Antonio, an amphibious warship mainly used to transport troops.

Questioning suspected terrorists aboard US warships in international waters is President Barack Obama’s answer to the Bush administration detention policies that candidate Obama promised to end. The strategy also makes good on Obama’s pledge to prosecute terrorists in US civilian courts, which many Republicans have argued against. But it also raises questions about using “law of war” powers to circumvent the safeguards of the US criminal justice system.

...

As of Monday, al-Libi had not been read his Miranda rights, which include the rights to remain silent and speak with an attorney. And it was unclear when al-Libi would be brought to the US to face charges.

If you read the article, which I frankly don't advise, it's pretty unclear how Serious You Guys This Is Better and Perfect!, when pretty much all the same things are being done.

Pretty much it's just Obama and his flacks insisting This Is Better Because Different Than Bush.
