On the restoration of habeas corpus, and what its costing the US to ignore it.
Turley: "The greatest irony of the Bush Administration is that his legacy will be to show the dangers of walking away from those rights that define us. We're very much alone today.

On the nexus of politics and terror:
. . . from the mind-bending idea that four guys dressed as Pizza Delivery men were going to out-gun all the soldiers at Fort Dix . . . to the not-too-thought-out plan to blow-up J-F-K Airport . . . here we go again. Time for an update of our segment "The Nexus of Politics and Terror".
And, to refresh our memories, the first part of that timeline.
Thanks, as always, to Crooks and Liars for hosting Mr Olbermann.
