So much to think about and worry about. Bush seems to be taking this opportunity to use military tribunals to try suspected terrorists, and his administration has taken to eavesdropping on suspects’ conversations with their lawyer.

They can get away with this because people don’t care about the terrorists.

They don’t think that they can be designated a suspect, so they figure the new rules won’t apply to them. The government takes advantage of this apathy by granting themselves more and more power. Civil liberties for suspected terrorists have taken a precipitous dive over the past couple of months. And, when suspects loose rights, we all loose rights.

This reminds me of what a co-worker said about downloading music over the Internet using Napster. “Until a judge decides its illegal, I don’t care.”
