FEE--In brief

Obama Makes First Move on Guantanamo

“Military judges will consider Wednesday whether to halt the Guantanamo war crimes trials after President Obama ordered prosecutors to request a 120-day suspension during a review of the system used to try suspected terrorists.” (USA Today, Wednesday)

The rights of the accused are important to us all.

Stimulus Spending Won’t Be Quick Enough, Study Says

“The government wouldn’t be able to spend at least one-fourth of a proposed $825 billion economic stimulus plan until after 2010, according to a new report that suggests it may take longer than expected to boost the economy.” (Bloomberg, Wednesday)

Close enough for government work.

A tea-leaf reader’s delight.
