The Witch Hunt: “If you don’t want to drag Osama bin Laden to the U.S. for a circus of a trial, fine. Shoot him in his cave. Bomb him. Whatever. He’s a war criminal on the loose and a genuine threat to kill thousands more at any time. But if you’re the United States of America, and you’re going to start arresting people and bringing them to trial, you have to give them fair trials. And before you start executing people, you have to try to make sure you’re separating the guilty from the innocent. This is not a principle that evaporates because the populace is angry and frightened.”
