President Obama is planning on Friday to resume the Bush administration's controversial military commission system for some Guantanamo detainees -- which he suspended in his first week in office -- according to three administration officials.
The move could increase tensions with liberal groups, led by the ACLU, which are already furious about Obama's shift this week to block the release of photos showing prisoners allegedly being abused by U.S. personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is just another proof of what many of us knew all along. Regardless of who is in power, the real power behind the US government is the Military-Industrial Complex. Anyone who tries to buck that force, ends up as JFK did.
Does anyone on ATS still deny that?
I fully expect another false-flag attack and a resulting war/invasion any day now.
The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama's War on American Values In "The Audacity of Deceit", readers will learn:
* How Barack Obama's "health care reform" plans will let government determine what types of medical procedures and operations senior citizens are permitted to have; * How Obama's position on abortion is opposed by the vast majority of Christians and Catholics, by way of exclusive polling data; * Obama's goal to implement his "zero to five" program, designed to transfer infant and child-raising responsibilities from parents to the federal government; * His plan to raise taxes to the economy-destroying 60 percent rate last seen under President Herbert Hoover during the Great Depression; * How Obama will spark a trade war that would eliminate millions of jobs; * Obama's plan to choke-off America's domestic energy resources and send gas and electricity prices through the roof; * How Obama will raise the cost of food by underwriting the ethanol energy speculators who are playing critical roles in his campaign.
In one explosive chapter, O'Leary exposes the entire family tree of friends and close Obama associates who are working on his campaign or as bundlers, including Thomas Ayers. Father to acknowledged domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Thomas Ayres through his corporation funded or supported the foundations and law firms that employed Obama. O'Leary also shows how Ayers was associated with the bank that gave Obama his controversial, low-interest home loan.
Another chapter called "The Barack Obama Test" gathers polling results from America's most reputable pollsters, including Zogby International, Rasmussen, Gallup Organization, and CNN/Opinion Research. Through these polls, readers learn how Obama's positions on a broad array of issues are completely at odds with those of the vast majority of Americans.
This chapter also includes Zogby polls- never seen before and available nowhere else - that show in stark detail the differing political views of the 70 percent of American voters who pay federal income taxes and the 30 percent who do not. This is the first time such exclusive polling information has been available to the general public.
Through these results, O'Leary reveals for the first time exactly who the non-taxpaying Americans are - right down to their voting preference, party affiliation, income levels, education, marital status, and even religious practices.
