I’m intentionally being the devil’s advocate here, but what the hell:
Or, in the slightly more poetic BoingBoing: Obama promises to suspend Habeas Corpus (long discussion here).
Granted, he is talking about what to do with the ex-Guantanamo-Bayers. It is a tricky situation. What you reap, is what you sow, etcetera. But it is curious how he mixes references to law, the Consitution and doing away with illegality and ad-hoc decisions, and instead suggests replacing them with a system that will effectively be beyond the law.
And of course, no mention is made of restricting this new “law system” only to Gauntanamo Bay and its residents…
