Americans Get It

This is an encouraging nugget from the Washington Post today:

The issue is not without complexity for Republicans. A Washington Post-ABC poll this week suggested that while Americans continue to favor holding suspects at the U.S. military installation at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, they are leery of an administration policy that has resulted in almost all of the 450 detainees being held without charges. Of those polled, 71 percent said the detainees should be either given POW status or charged with a crime.

That's always seemed to me to be the right choice. I'd opt for POW status. But I can understand the alternative option. If the opponents of this administration's bull-headed disdain for Western principles need a slogan, they just got one.
