We Need a Report On the Facts
Don't you really love those important sounding designations?
U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executionsIs that impressive enough to get you a table at Le Cirq? How about this one:
special rapporteur on protecting human rights while countering terrorismDo you suppose either of those guys have any actual experience in "countering terrorism"? Like have they gotten mud on their boots somewhere stopping a jihadi or two?
"However, the norm should be that terrorists be dealt with as criminals, through legal processes of arrest, trial and judicially-decided punishment,"Who established that "norm" and when? Have they been talking to Eric Holder? Frankly, I think that terrorists who freely admit they are at war against the civilized world are far worse than criminals. I think these fine gentlemen's "norms" are a bit abnormal.
