More of Pres. Bush

He needs to keep this up. I will link the speech when I find it, but my favorite part was where he was informing us regarding the 14 key terrorist suspects being taken to Guantanamo Bay including 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. He basically said that we treat our prisoners in Gitmo with a hell of a LOT more compassion and dignity than they ever showed. He specifically related the food, healthcare, and right to worship as they please. In other words, those who complain about Gitmo don't know what they are talking about and can just shutup until they do.

Update: I love Kate O'Beirne and she nailed it on this part of the speech:

"I think the White House has been reluctant to tout the fact that there hasn't been a terrorist attack here since 9/11 owing to the "knock on wood" imperative. In today's excellent speech, the President finally explained in detail that it is no accident. American operatives have been aggressive in tracking down the bad guys and tracing the connections they give up under questioning. President Bush is determined to give them the tools they need and the protections they have earned in the crucial work they do. Congressional Republicans now have the ammunition they need to line up behind him. Will Lindsay Graham be out of step?"

Update: Speech here.
