It's not easy these days to look at the future of the United States with any sort of optimism. The last six years have shown us that much of what we've claimed to be is a lie, and what we really are is not better, but rather far worse than most of the rest of humanity.
Thus it is almost a shock to get good news from unexpected quarters. But the rulings by military judges on the captives at Gitmo shows that residues of intelligence, honor and decency still live where one could expect them to be already extinguished.
Scott Horton writes as good an article as any I've read in a long, long time about this. If you'd like to enjoy a touch of optimism, I suggest you read it.
