Potato, potahto?


As Leopold described it in an August 6 article at Al Jazeera (emphasis in original):

"In response to the court filing, the government on Friday released a partially redacted version of Bogdans declaration, and argued that the blacked-out passages in the document should remain secret because they contained sensitive operational-security information about Guantanamo.

But it appears government lawyers were unaware that another version of Bogdans declaration one that contained a different set of redactions was publicly released last month, in documents filed with the federal appeals court when the government asked Lamberths decision to be put on hold.

Redacted passages that the government says needs to remain secret are unredacted in the earlier version filed on the public record as part of the governments appeal. At the same time, some unredacted passages in the declaration submitted on Friday are redacted in the public version of Bogdans declaration filed with the appeals court last month."

For some reason, I am portrayed as the one who is evil in formulating policies that people disagree with. I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror.<202><203>


I believe that was said by Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States of America and, as such, head of the U.S. Department of Justice. Oops, no. My bad.

1. Apparently they will make any claim.
Suggesting that Al Qaeda could attack Guantanamo is ridiculous.

2. Crazy pants.
I missed the moment when my country went through the looking glass, but I am sure that moment occurred.

Maybe it was when Kennedy was murdered? Maybe it was 1776. Maybe it was 1620. I can't tell. Not smart enough.
