Rummy supports lettre de cachet 

The lettre de cachet was the power that the kings of pre-revolutionary France had, to hold citizens indefinitely, without trial, on the word of the king (in our case, George I).

Stephen Mcdonough of the AP writes:

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld says most suspected terrorists at a U.S. prison camp in Cuba will probably be detained for the course of the global war on terrorism rather than face trial.

And since the global war on terrorism is an endless war (particularly the way these guys are fighting it), these prisoners will be held indefinitely.

Oh, but don't worry—this will only happen to "bad guys."

And if you want to know who the bad guys are, just ask the Republicans. They'll be more than happy to tell you.
