I agree with Adam. You’ve done a lot of great work this year from the Maye case to the Ruttenberg fiasco.
I’d quibble a bit with the very first bullet point in your fox article. You said “The Bush administration will claim it has the power to kidnap citizens of foreign countries for violating U.S. law, and extradite them to the U.S. for trial and imprisonment—even for white collar crimes unrelated to terrorism, and even for acts that aren’t illegal in the countries where the target is a citizen.” The article in the Times points out …”the Supreme Court ruled in 1992…” The Bush administration isn’t pulling this out of thin air, the supreme court ruled on this almost a decade before he was even elected.
Tokin42: I hope you are equally critical when people criticize politicians who aren’t members of your party.
That said, your quibble is pretty silly and overly defensive, especially since it actually was a Republican administration that attempted to engage in cross-border kidnapping, and then simply stated that the logic came out of an earlier court decision.
