For those interested in reading the actual document (and forgive me if it was linked elsewhere), it can be found here:http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/sections/news/020413_DOJ_W...I have to go back and re-read Hamdi, but on first pass I find this to be a deeply disturbing justification for the killing of U.S. citizens with no process whatsoever. Some of the phrases in the memo are horrific in their clinical description of these killings - allow me to nominate the statement:"An individual's interest in avoiding erroneous deprivation of his life is 'uniquely compelling.'"...as one of the most chilling euphemisms for "deliberate killing" that I've read in a long time. We don't wrongly kill people - we erroneously deprive them of their lives.It will be interesting to see if groups that loudly decried practices like waterboarding and extraordinary rendition similarly denounce this approach as even more monstrous.
