    Great work Radley. Thanks.

    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.

    Great! You almost got me. I got to number three before I realized what you were doing.

    Too much information! I can only maintain a certain level of outrage, and when you dump all this on me (again) all I can do is run away, screaming!!!

    Great Column. As always.

    Not to take away from the serious nature of this excellent work, but all I could think of while reading was the Conan “year 2000” sketch.

    “In the year 2000….in the year 2000…”

    “— Standing on the sidewalk will become a crime”

    Isn’t that what Pastor Fred Phelps got fined $11 million for doing?

    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.
