Tuesday Afternoon Open Thread
I'm off to court for the afternoon. BTD has many posts up this morning on health care and politics, just scroll down for them.
Via the ACLU: The 9th Circuit held oral argument today in the Boeing-Jeppeson Ghost Air/states secret case.
"To this day, not a single victim of the Bush administration's torture policies has had his day in court. Across the board, the administration is taking positions that deny torture victims any chance for justice," said ACLU staff attorney Ben Wizner. "It is no longer credible to claim that extraordinary rendition is a state secret. This case should be allowed to move forward without further delay."
The ACLU also testified before Congress today, warning that the war on terror must not infringe on constitutionally protected liberties.
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
