The Emperor has no brains either....

Terrorism begins at home, as they say. And so does regime change. Here's a short piece about Khalid El-Masri, taken by the US and tortured in Afghanistan in spite of the US government's full knowledge that he had no connection to terrorism of any kind.

The following statement from the piece says it all: "Claims of unfettered executive power, after all, fit ill with the mounting evidence of incompetence and sloppiness that the El-Masri case too acutely illustrates." Even if you do believe the government has to spy on citizens and torture suspects to fight terror, do you want to give that power to a government comprised of the short-bus kids? Hell, with DE-de-de people like the Bushies running things, any of us could be next.
