Alarmism In Defense of Liberty Is No Vice

Avedon Carol at The Sideshow points us to Jim Henley's magnificent rant re: that constitutional imprimato bestowed on all those detentions the Bush DOD claims it can't tell us about, by our old friend, Judge David Sentelle and collegue on the DC Ct. of Appeals.

Remember when we used to become indignant at the Reagan administration's support for the Argentine junta, and its indifference to those magnificent Mad Mothers of the Plaza Mayo, who protested the disappearance of thier accused loved ones every Thursday in that famous Buenos Aires plaza?

Jim Henley does. And Avedon wonders if the third amendment is the only one currently operational.

Go read.
