And for the second time today...

...I am sick at heart.

Is there not a shred of morality left in the US judiciary? A rhetorical question.

The Supreme Court, by refusing (on the Obama administration's request) to hear a case decided by the DC Circuit Court and leaving that judgement intact, has placed its imprimature upon the following propositions:

1) Guantanamo prisoners are not "persons";

2) "[T]orture is a foreseeable consequence of the military’s detention of suspected enemy combatants."

Q. What is the greatest enemy of Western civilization?
A. Western civilization.
