Why did President Bush finally admit Wednesday — almost five years after Sept. 11 — that, yes, the U.S. government has been holding terrorism prisoners in secret locations? Did he announce it now to put pressure on Congress to approve procedures for putting terrorists on trial? Or to remind Americans, just before the November elections, of the dangers we’re facing? Or was he respectfully following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling about the treatment of detainees? Or it is just that the CIA is done interrogating the terrorists and wants to dump them at Guantanamo Bay? Whatever the reason, it is good that Bush decided to bring the terrorists and the secret program, as he put it, “into the open.”
