Over at the popular liberal website, Mike Whitney is actually arguing....ah, why don't I just let you be surprised by the stupidity,Bush has done everything in his power to place himself above the law, particularly when it comes to deciding issues of life and death. These are not matters that should be left to the flawed judgment of one man. By ignoring the flagrant violations of the law in the imprisonment and subsequent torture of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, we further reinforce the precedents that Bush is setting. That's a blueprint for dictatorship.
...However horrible he may be, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed poses no threat to our system or our freedom. Bush does. We'd be better off letting one guilty man free than destroying the laws that protect all of us from liberty's greatest enemy; the State.
Mohammed has been abducted, tortured, and deprived of his rights. Give him an ankle bracelet, and let him go.
Yes, that's right, we have a liberal actually arguing that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind who personally beheaded Daniel Pearl, should be released with an "ankle bracelet."
I have an idea. Let's give Mohammed this ankle bracelet and let him serve his probation at Mr. Whitney's house. And as a gift for being so mean to him we could get him a brand new set of kitchen knives.
