Rumsfeld) against military tribunals at Guantanamo, the Defense Department went live with a new site in anticipation of the first death penalty war crimes prosecution of the Obama administration. Hailed as "a new era of transparency" the move actually represents preemptive cover for criminal extension of executive power.
