Today we learned that President Obama wants to keep military commissions for detainees but expand detainee rights, saying commissions are "appropriate" and "legitimate"; Amnesty International and the ACLU are irate at the decision; Lakhdar Boumediene is on his way to France, where he'll face terrorism charges; 2,083 FISA court wiretaps were approved in 2008; the White House is trying to sell its tribunals policy to allies; CIA Director Leon Panetta told his employees that Pelosi got the truth and they should "ignore the noise" of the controversy; the Chamber of Commerce says it supports climate change legislation--but hasn't changed its stance that much; and what Mark Blumenthal has learned at the annual pollsters' convention in Hollywood, Florida.

Additionally, we considered whether Obama's generals steamrolled him in the debate over detainee photos; where the administration draws the lines on how to treat Guantanamo detainees; the ins and outs of the tribunal policy; why the adminisration wants to preserve hearsay evidence; and whether America is becoming pro-life.
