Gitmo Gets More....

With November fast approaching, the candidates are trying to figure out how to attack each other. With Senator McCain's more conservative view on national security differing from Senator Obama's far more liberal view, there are sure to be some clashes.

Right now, a group of Gitmo detainees are awaiting their trial which could start as early as September (under the Military Commissions Act of 2006, detainees can have a trial within 120 days of being detained). With November elections so close, it'll be interesting to see what the different camps have to say about such a trial.

McCain's office has already called for more stringent rules on national security efforts while Obama's office believes that there needs to be a more focused approach on implementing and carrying out laws rather than simply tightening the rules. has a great analysis of the issue.
