CABANA BOY, THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING:

Kerry: McCain Bin Laden Argument 'Phony' (Teddy Davis, Gregory Wallace, and James Gerber, June 17, 2008, ABC News)

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., suggested Tuesday that Osama Bin Laden would be entitled to Habeas Corpus rights under a recent Supreme Court decision should he be detained by the United States at Guantanamo Bay. [...]

Kerry was joined on the Obama call by Richard Clarke, the former counterterrorism czar and ABC News consultant, who argued that the question of whether Obama favors Habeas rights for Bin Laden is "largely a fake issue." [...]

"[I]f he were to be brought back" to Guantanamo, said Clarke, "the Supreme Court ruling holds on the right of Habeas Corpus."


Except that Senator Obama says he favors that result and would accede to the ruling, so it isn't phony.
