Hillary Clinton gets it right on civilian trials for accused terrorists, unlike our conservative President
[Adding... It was such a relief to hear somebody say, "Yes! Let's try them in the courts!" that I momentarily lost my skepticism. Because Clinton is, after all, arguing that we should use the civilian courts because they have a better success rate, where success is defined as putting terrorists in jail. A better definition of success, to me, would be ending the empire entirely, since it's wrong, we can't afford it, and it breeds the terrorism our elites are so... terrified of. That's off the table, unfortunately, for le tout Versailles, including Clinton. That said, it's a measure of how insane and delusional our discourse has been and still is that Clinton's statement feels to me like a ray of hope. --lambert]
[UPDATE See Hugh's comment here. I stand corrected. --lambert]
Doesn't she realize that the United States is a banana republic where the rule of law doesn't exist and the "President" can do whatever they want with impunity? What's wrong with her?
