With the Miranda issue on the front burner, the two questions of where to try the 9/11 terrorist suspects and where to relocate detainees from the Guantanamo Bay prison have faded. A former Bush administration lawyer, Michael Edney, says it will be many months before the Obama administration decides those two controversial matters.
