I just want to make sure I’ve got this correct:

  • Endless detention without trial for accusations in which the evidence against you is kept from you in your defense.  Okay.
  • Denying habeas corpus. Okay.
  • Warrantless wiretapping and data mining of domestic U.S. calls, including those made by and between U.S. citizens. Okay.
  • Having a TSA agent touch your junk to see if you’re hiding an actual rocket in your pocket and not because your happy to see said TSA agent.  Bad.

We’ve apparently finally seen where the American people will draw the line between the competing societal interests of civil liberties and fighting terrorism.  And that line is around America’s junk (which apparently is now called a “Liberty Zone.”)

Anything outside of that is apparently free game.

Am I missing something here?
