I started out to put this in IMHO because it’s just an opinion. I think it probably would end up here anyway so to same moderators some trouble, here it is.
This morning’s Los Angles Times has this story aboutInterior Department top brass editing out unpleasant conclusions in a report. I’ve seen a an increasing number of other such accounts of the inputs to reports by low level scientists and others being changed by the top level political appointees to make the report conclusions kinder to the business friends of the administration.
In addition we have the political appointees of the Justice Department using what appears to be pettifoggery to justify holding people indefinitely without charge, on little apparent evidence in order to get intelligence data, and with no access to legal assistance to force a review of their treatment by an impartial authority.
Is it any wonder that some of us are seriously worried about what sort of people GW would name for the Surpreme Court?
