Military Tribunals

MILITARY TRIBUNALS….A table is worth a thousand words. From this week’s Economist, here’s a comparison of the Pentagon’s new military commissions with various other courts. Not a very pretty picture.

And don’t forget: even if a suspect is miraculously acquitted in one of these courts, they still won’t be released. That is a “separate determination,” according to the folks running these show trials.

This is disgraceful. Our children are going to look back on this the same way we look back on Japanese internment camps and McCarthy-era loyalty oaths.
