27. Oh yeah, here it is in this article.....

In his speech, Mr. Bush called on Congress to approve legislation he is submitting today to hold military tribunals for Guantanamo detainees. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Mr. Bush's plan for such tribunals, saying Congress must pass a law to create them.

The president said about 455 detainees remain at Guantanamo.

Mr. Bush called on Congress to clarify the rules on fighting the war on terror, particularly those covering what acts are considered war crimes. He asked lawmakers to make sure terrorists cannot use the Geneva Conventions to sue U.S. service personnel for simply doing their jobs.

They've got to work quickly before hitting the campaign trail. All they've got is fear-mongering and their idea of National Security. ABC called it the other morning. I hope the Dems are awake and paying attention.
