I’m going to restrict today’s bloggage to the following comment, spotted here at Comment is free. See if you can spot the minor flaws in this all-too-common argument:

ClaudeMynott – June 12, 2006 05:55 PM:

When our nation faces terrorism, we have to bend the rules, change our methods and yes, sometimes take harsh measures to defend the innocent from those who have, by their terrorist loyalties and actions, LOST ANY CLAIM TO HAVE HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE CHANCE OF FAIR PLAY.

Give me any day a terrorist suspect shot dead over the repetition of the July 7th terrorist attack.

(Predictably, later in this thread, ClaudeMynott falls back on the ticking time bomb scenario. Always fun to watch.)
