Afghanistan is less despotic than the US!

Glenn Greenwald points out the horrible irony being played out in the US over the 'lock 'em up without a trial and throw away the key' provisions in the new NDAA.

Prisoners have more right under Afghan laws than they would in the good old USA today.  So much for the shining beacon on the hill myth wrt America as an example of justice, rule of law and individual freedoms.

Canada will probably not be far behind now that the CIA and FBI have been given the right to arrest folks inside Canada by Harper in the recent omnibus bill.  More restrictions will inevitably follow in the one currently being introduced sans debate in Parliament.
