An excellent piece by Glenn Greenwald on law, conservatism and lawlessness

over at, see this post by Glenn Greenwald:  Conservatism:  The British vs. the U.S. right

All I would add is that what is described as the British right in Glenn’s piece also describes core American values, which “we” (some of us) are too willing to abandon in order to fight terror. President Bush often says that “they hate our values.” Some of the values that “they” hate, “we” are treating as disposable. Basic due process is an example.
