Well I'm wondering if the present administration ,with its newly minted "rubber stamp" One Party Congress , has already made an exception for the American Taliban captured.
I guess they're making the distinction of "in the field" black ops the way Isreal's Mossad "hit squds" operates. Yes, we are now in the "looking glass" all world war of the 21st century and I can effortlessly predict that some of the John Pointdexter-class of right wingnutter hawks won't be able to resist to "overstep" whatever bounds there even are and cause a few Iran-Contra class scandals only there will be John Ashcroft's DoJ giving out plenary indulgences with the "rubber stamp" Republican Congress guranteed to "never" do any investigations , forget "hearings", that would harm Dubya's gang its re-election shot.
Obviously we're now on the slippery slope of " In war ,anything goes" policy.
Yes, I have that little confidence in an All Republican Gov't which will undoubtly mean packing the Supreme Court next.
Watch for it.
