In response to America’s befuddling fearfulness at the thought of putting Guantanamo inmates in U.S. jails so they can actually have a trial:
“Nobody escapes from maximum-security prisons. But even if they did, who would you rather have on the lam in your neighborhood — a native of Afghanistan whose history suggests an affinity for jihad? Or a resident of your own state whose history suggests an affinity for breaking into people’s houses, tying them up and torturing them?” Gail Collins – NYTimes
America is less safe than you think.
And MUCH less free. Nobody – ever, anywhere – should be held by Americans for years without a fair trial. Some don’t even have charges yet. Who in their right minds still believes in that ‘Land of the Free’ blather?
