so, they finally caught the other brother… i just read an interesting comment on cnn.com made by senators john mccain and lindsey graham:
“Now that the suspect is in custody, the last thing we should want is for him to remain silent. It is absolutely vital the suspect be questioned for intelligence gathering purposes,” the senators said. “Under the law of war we can hold this suspect as a potential enemy combatant not entitled to Miranda warnings or the appointment of counsel.”
that’s pretty scary, no? ok, it’s likely that these brothers are guilty but lets just play devil’s advocate. what if they’re not? what if this is some mass conspiracy and they were set up to take the fall? if this method of interrogation without basic rights becomes acceptable then the government can strip anyone of those rights anytime an act of terrorism is suspected. i don’t see that going well for people of color… the stuff that’s going on right now is the stuff movies are made of…
anyway, back to fashion.
