A bad idea?
We're talking about the Man in the Iron Mask kind of stuff here, and the best we can get from the Senate is "it's a bad idea?"
A reported U.S. plan to keep some suspected terrorists imprisoned for a lifetime even if the government lacks evidence to charge them in courts was swiftly condemned on Sunday as a "bad idea" by a leading Republican senator.
I mean, congrats to Senator Lugar for being so forceful as to say it's "probably unconstitutional" and "a bad idea." I mean, I wouldn't want the US to be mistaken for a country where people the government takes into custody don't have due process, even when the Supreme Court has said they do. Jeez.
