The commentator is trying to interpret what the President is saying and is doing a very poor & very biased job of it, thereby making it seem that Obama is doing the same thing The Bush admin. did. He is clearly saying his detention would be strictly done by the Constitution and the Rule of Law and would be administered by more than one person.
Not exactly, I do believe you misinterpret what he is saying, he is going to get cronies that agree with him to collectively decide rather than making the sole decision himself. This does not by far mean in any way that it is constitutional. Are they receiving a trial? Are they being charged with a crime? Are they entitled to constitutional mandates or hearings?… No they are not. So instead of him making the decision and taking the blame he has others to do it for him and blame. Pass the buck, claim plausible deniability and when SHTF they can each blame each other and no actual resolution is necessary, fire one hire another. They just suspend the right to a fair trial by your peers, rather some people in secret can collectively decide your guilt without you ever putting a word in. Are you willing to go first? If not then why would you subject others to it? Is the commentator bias… sure, are they wrong? I would say no.
