Graham Applauds Obama Plans to Revive Military Commissions
Speaking at the Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing today about torture, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) appeared to confirm reports that the Obama administration is planning to revive the much-criticized military commissions.
After excusing the Bush administration’s torture and abuse policies, Graham noted that he had a meeting yesterday with administration officials about what should be done with the detainees held at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. “It’s my belief that they may ask for another continuance regarding military commission trials” to continue reviewing and consider reviving them, he said.
“President Obama in my opinion has made some very sound decisions,” Graham said.
