The Must-Do List
The New York Times editorial today is called the Must-Do List. The piece asks what Bush needs to undo with the first point being to retore Habeas Corpus. I was not aware that this condition existed in the USA. This is unimaginable. To put this writ aside, which is not to determine one’s guilt or innocence but soley to decide if you have been illegally imprisoned serves what purpose? If the charge is valid you go free, if not you stay imprisoned. To tamper with this truly shows how xenophobia continues to be alive and well in our southern neighbour.
