reality spin

Perhaps you all missed this since it was in today's (Saturday's NYT): Bush is treating the Supreme Court's ruling to his own reality spin. Stating that the court had tacitly approved his use of the detention center at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Unfortuantely, that was NOT the question before the Supreme Court; the case before the court was (Hamdan v. Rumsfeld) that military commissions were unauthorized by statute and violated international law. Housing detainees at Guantánamo Bay was not at issue.
