Evidence from torture now admissible

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at December 3, 2004 1:10 PM

The US Government wants to use evidence acquired from torture in the military tribunal trials of "enemy combatants".

Recall that US citizens have been detained as enemy combatants while captured on such infamous battlefields as O'Hare airport.

I don't really have much to say about this (besides a wordless scream of horror), but Kieran Healy at Crooked Timber has more.

Actually, O'Hare can be pretty deadline, especially if you have to race across it in 10-15 minutes to desperately catch a flight. I had this experience once, and I don't care to repeat it.

That was a pretty nice Freudian slip, eh?
