Magnificent post by Jim Henley about the astonishing decision by a U.S. appellate court to allow secret detention of suspects. I can't quote (the computer I'm working on isn't highlighting text properly), so I'll simply give you one word: "Desaparecidos". It means "disappeared". It used to happen back in the days of executives-ran-amok in South America. Looks like the least likely country in North America isn't immune either.Of course, right now it's just the terrorists, right? Maybe, but still...

"First they came for the terrorists, but I wasn't a terrorist, so I stayed silent..."
