What there is to hide

Ashcroft is defying a court order and not allowing Zacarias Moussaoui to accused 9/11 plotter Ramzi bin al-Shibh. Once again the man who leads our nation's law enforcement blatantly defies the law as he sees fit. I will tell who what my suspicion is as to why he won't allow the questioning, two :

In court papers, the department said Attorney General John Ashcroft had determined that testimony from the accused terrorist Ramzi bin al-Shibh, a confessed participant in the Sept. 11 attacks, "would necessarily result in the unauthorized disclosure of classified information" and that "such a scenario is unacceptable to the government."

The government has said Mr. bin al-Shibh is being interrogated at a secret place overseas.

Mr. bin al-Shibh is very likely being tortured right now, in whatever "ally" has conveniently lenient laws to allow it. If he were produced for this case then he would let the world know what atrocities he'd been submitted to. I feel pretty sure that this is the case. And I can understand that some people would in fact be pleased to learn that those responsible for 9/11 are being tortured. But that's not what this country was founded on. And it is in difficult times like these that it is MOST important for us to stand by our principles. If not then we undermine their integrity. I can't believe these people are running my country!
