Thank You, George Will

On today’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, conservative pundit George Will correctly pointed out the absurdity in the notion that Guantanamo detainees are too dangerous to try in the U.S.

The supermax prisons in our country are full of Americans who have killed Americans and are perfectly safe, so the idea that we cannot find a place to house these few people who are very dangerous strikes me as preposterous.

Agree with him or not on policy, Mr. Will (along with maybe David Brooks) is one of only a handful of conservative commentators who are intellectually curious and consistently stick to their political principles regardless of the politics of the day.
