From the Washington Post: Bush's Detainee Plan Assailed.

Quote of the day, perhaps of the year:

"I am not aware of any situation in the world where there is a system of jurisprudence that is recognized by civilized people where an individual can be tried and convicted without seeing the evidence against him," said Brigadier Gen. James C. Walker, staff judge advocate to the Marine Corps commandant.

That's what we've come to, this is how far down the depraved Bush Gang has brought us: a man can be a hero for stating an obvious fact that has been accepted as plain common sense for hundreds of years.
