Re: What is Obama doing wrong?
As the Commander in Chief, the President has absolute power to cease the suspension of Habeas Corpus. He can, at any time, pick up the phone, call the Pentagon and say "You will either arraign or release every prisoner at Gitmo (and wherever else we are holding them) immediately." And that's the end of it. There is no appeal to an order from the CinC.
