"Since May 2009, when President Obama first bowed to Republican pressure on national-security issues and abandoned a plan by White House Counsel Greg Craig to rehouse on the U.S. mainland a couple of cleared prisoners at Guantanamo who were at risk of torture if repatriated, it has been apparent that no principles are sufficiently important to the administration that officials won't jettison them the moment that critics start howling."
