That's the right way to do it, Obama comes around to admitting, by coincidence, on the day he launches his reelection effort.
ADDED: What would it take for Obama to say Bush was right... or anything close to that... just a decent amount of respect for his predecessor?
AND: Here's the link to the NYT article, indicating that the decision represents no real judgment by Obama or Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., but simply yielding to Congress's "steep new restrictions on transferring any detainees from Guantánamo Bay onto United States soil, making such a trial impossible."
UPDATE: Holder speaks (live).
ADDED: Holder is adamant that his original decision was correct. Congress made it impossible for him to follow his original policy. The last question challenged him about how long it will take: perhaps another 10 years? He answers quickly and testily and — to my eye — stomps out of the room.
