Apollo 4 on column of fire

The Annals of Duh

1. Barack Obama says he needs a year to think about how to close down the Guantanamo Bay concentration camp. Obama-supporting types everywhere rejoice.

2. Obama goes to court to defend his power to keep prisoners in the concentration camp (for more than a year, presumably).

3. Certain Obama-supporting types (BuzzFlash, in particular) express astonishment and confusion, because Obama defends his power to keep prisoners in the concentration camp.

One must presume that BuzzFlash et al. would rather Obama deny he has the power to hold the prisoners, yet hold them anyway.
