112. Maybe you should ask that question to the framers of the US constitution
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 04:04 PM by liberation
I am sure if only they had had the foresight of assuming that in the future our country would be engaged on endless un-winnable conflicts against abstract concepts, they would most certainly have not bothered with that whole thing about the US government being bound to conduct speedy far trials and not inflict cruel and unusual punishment.

Alas, many criminals often feel it is not they who have broken the laws but that the legal system has not yet managed to catch up with their visionary techniques. So I am sure there must be a perfectly valid reasoning as to why the US government has operated in such unconstitutional manner while neglecting the Geneva convention to boot. Win-win I assume.
