So Military Tribunals Aren't Such a Bad Idea After All

President Obama has formally reversed himself on military tribunals.

Of course, earlier this week he reversed on the release of photos alleging military abuse of detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq.

As with the photos I wish he had come to this position sooner rather than later. But better later than never.

In the long run I think Obama stands to gain from these "flip-flops." His reversals are in accordance with majority will. The only people who are going to give him grief are the Far Left. If that is the case it will only hurt the arguments of conservatives who assert (myself included)that Obama is a creature of the Far Left. It is moves such as these that might very well bring on board "Americans whose support I have yet to earn."
