The military commission system created to try 9/11 terrorists is on life support. The country would be better off pulling the plug...

"By the end of the morning, I couldn't shake the feeling that the object of all this energy, expertise and professional good will -- the modern military commission -- was fundamentally unworthy of any of it, a jury-rigged ship foundering in a heavy sea of law, politics and the struggle among the branches of government that has been a hallmark of the prolonged Guantánamo saga. The D.C. Circuit can't save it, even if it were so inclined -- which it didn't appear to be. -- Linda Greenhouse
