    A military judge in Guantanamo Bay has denied the Obama administration's request to delay proceedings for 120 days in the case of a detainee accused of planning the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole warship, an al-Qaeda strike that killed 17 service members and injured 50 others.

    The decision issued Thursday throws into some disarray the administration's efforts to buy time to review individual detainee cases as part of its plan to close the U.S. military prison at the Guantanamo naval base in Cuba. The Pentagon may now be forced to temporarily withdraw the charges against Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi citizen of Yemeni descent.

    Trying to figure this one out. Cause this sounds to me like an Officer telling his CinC that he will not follow the order, and i've not seen an justification for it yet.

    This should be very interesting.

    If the military judge is not slapped down by the administration, O will look like he can't control the military.

    It appears as if the administration made a "request" and didn't issue an "order".

    I'm sure an order will be forth coming, then it could get interesting.

    Could Obama order this judge to stop the proceedings?

    He would have to look good first.

    Let's say he does order the judge to stop all trials and at some point in the future these terrorists are set free by the administration. We have already seen that some of those that have been set free have gone back to their terrorist roots and continued to kill. So if some time in the future one or more of these freed terrorists decode to blow up NYC or some other city with massive loss of lives does O shoulder the blame? I say no since it would be Bush's fault for confining them to Gitmo in the first place, or at least that is what the left would claim.

    Good for the judge. If Obama wants these proceedings stopped and that results in a "kinder gentler" trial, as soon as one of these guys is ID'ed in a repeat performance, there will be no rethugs to blame, and no way to spin it so. I.E. he'll be taking the responsibility for his decision. They don't like that, you know.
