#4 The USSC (SCOTUS) went off the rails in several of the detention cases - and it is Bush's failure that he didn't step up to the plate (esp. after the second unreasonable rejection of tribunal procedures, a decision the chief justice decried as "bait and switch" that threatened to undermine the rule of law and the Constitution) and say "no more - the SCOTUS has taken a step to subvert the Constitution, and is acting in a frivolous matter concerning national security, and their ruling will not be complied with".

The resulting brouhaha would not be a "constitutional crisis" - it would be a RECOGNITION of the crisis caused by the SCOTUS.

But that sort of leadership is unimaginable, even from Bush. The farce that the SCOTUS has, for the most part, become for many years now on so many issues will eventually get people killed, and not just make them poorer and less free.

#6 Need to shackle all the prisoners to the floor of some worthless ship's cargo hold, and steam VERY SLOWLY along the Somali coast. Follow it in a Los Angeles-class submarine. When the Somalis attack, the submarine will set of the scuttling charges hidden in the bilges. Solve two problems at one time.
