For those following the Hamdan pre-trial confinement issue, I give you the government's motion for reconsideration here and the defense opposition here. Not a lot of time for analysis, but I will say two things. It is amazing how the defense and government are changing positions in this case compared to the normal course of things. The government arguing error that was not preserved at trial and defense arguing deference to the actions of the commission. Second, the defense says little if anything on the merits about Geneva or other go to arguments for the Hamdan camp. Interesting how that works when you already have the upper hand.
