“This administration is populated by people who’ve spent their careers bashing government. They’re not just small-government conservatives—they’re Grover Norquist, strangle-it-in-the-bathtub conservatives. It’s a cognitive disconnect for them to be able to do something well in an arena that they have so derided and reviled all these years.”

Throw those stones

What's a little torture of innocent foreigners in the war on terror, anyway, right?
A military review has determined a second prisoner held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is wrongly classified as an enemy combatant, and he will be released to his home country soon, a Pentagon official said Monday.

Navy Secretary Gordon England refused to provide the man's name or nationality, and the circumstances of his original capture were not immediately available. The State Department has been notified of the decision and will make arrangements to return him home.

It's so much easier to assume everyone is guilty and punish them rather than take the time to prove it through legitimate means. Can't people in America see that those prisoners in Guantanamo are out to destroy the very foundation of our country, and because of that we need to destroy the foundation of our country to stop them?
