Send Scooter Libby to Guantanamo — or Shut It Down
That’s the title of an e-mail I got yesterday. And it makes sense. In the name of “National Security” we've been putting terrorist suspects in Guantanamo Bay so that the Constitution and Geneva Convention won’t apply.
Well, if outing a CIA agent isn't a breach of national security, what is? Remember, Bush 41 once said that people who reveal the names of covert operatives are “the most insidious of traitors.” If the Constitution and Geneva Convention are “quaint” and “outdated” — as Abu Gonzales says they are — then why should Scooter Libby get any special privileges? Off to Gitmo with him!!
I personally would rather have the Guantanamo Bay prison shut down. I think the Constitution and Geneva Convention should apply to all war criminals, including Scooter Libby. If you think the same standard — whatever that standard is — should apply to everyone convicted or suspected of war crimes, click here.
