Colonel Moe Davis Takes a Page from Ho Chi Minh's Playbook

The Military Commissions Chief Prosecutor, Colonel Moe Davis (known for his six-point plan for manipulating the media,) was interviewed this morning on an Australian radio program. You can either play a real audio stream of the entire program or download an mp3 file of the segment.

This is our favorite quote:

During the Vietnam War we had Americans who were detained by the Vietnamese for more than 9 years, they were never charged, never set foot in a courtroom. So I dont apologize for, um, the fact that it has been 5 years in this case - it's regrettable and but he is going to get his day in court and a fair trial.

- Adrian Bleifuss Prados

P.S.: Eric Freedman alerts us to a recent piece of news; Vietnam has
abolished the practice of holding national security detainees without trial.

I wonder what those imprisoned in Vietnamese POW camps would have to say about that...Senator McCain?
