Investigation - Interception of com... - terrorism

I always found the whole idea and process of Guatanamo scary, unjustifiable and a flagrant violation of what we stand for, i.e. human rights. The use of terrorism legislation is part of the problem as it circonvenes most if not all safeguards democracy took so long to implement in the course of criminal investigations and trials. After centuries of fighting for fairness, in less than a decade, we went back to the Middle Ages and for the UK, the Star Chamber.
This issue of warrantless wiretapping is just one example out of many..."Warrantless Wiretapping Lawsuit Allowed To Move Forward Despite Ridiculous Levels Of Secrecy" (TechDirt, 6 January 2009)
Is it the legacy we want to give to our children?
