Obama to continue to detain people indefinitely and without charge

Where's your outrage now? Will the left call Obama Hitler as they did Bush for this?

This will make your head spin.

"The Obama administration has decided not to seek legislation to establish a new system of preventive detention to hold terrorism suspects and will instead rely on a 2001 congressional resolution authorizing military force against al-Qaeda and the Taliban to continue to detain people indefinitely and without charge, according to administration officials.

Leading congressional Democrats and members of the civil rights community had signaled opposition to any new indefinite-detention regime, fearing that it would expand government powers and undermine the rule of law and U.S. legal traditions."

But that's exactly what they said about the existing legislation!! Where's the left's outrage over this? When Bush did it he was evil but when Obama continues Bush's policies, everything is just fine?

The left have nowhere to hide now.

Update. Ed Morrissey has more.
