Stateless terrorism is nothing new under the sun, and there is an historical name for it: piracy. We have international precedents for dealing with pirates, and our constitution provides for the eventuality of doing so. This is nothing new to American history but the technology has changed, and the bombing methods of the great powers are now held and used by the smaller ones. So it always has been and always will be, power never remains with the center, or the center moves.
We will move the center from John Bush (what I call George now). We will give it to someone else, or take it back for ourselves. He will be impeached in the court of public opinion regardless of what the congress does.
Juan Cole has more, quoting Ed Furey on the unconstitutionality of the Torture Bill. (I will decline to call it an act or law because it is plainly in contravention of the constitution and is no law.)
