    And that's why we obey them.

    Just think: if we had, we would even be able to prosecute, try, and convict the folks at Gitmo or Bagram who actually ARE guilty of crimes.

    But because we have proceeded illegally, out of an idiotic 24 wet dream, we have no hope of that. And as a bonus, we have provoked revenge from people whom we turned into budding terrorists.

    Keep your eye on the fact that the "we gotta get the bad man" scenario is what got us into this mess. It ain't gonna get us out of it.
