    comfortable with consent being a one-time thing, rather than an on-going process.  It might be necessary to explain the latter is how the Constitution is set to work.  Under our system there are agents of government; there are no permanent authorities, nor even term-limited ones.

    Bush/Cheney wouldn't have had to argue that war time is an exception, if they weren't fully aware of that.

    The invasion of Iraq is still the biggest crime.  I don't think it was even authorized by the U.N.  The subsequent presence to "provide security" and supervise reconstruction was reluctantly agreed to, as has been the most recent SOFA.  But, none of that changes the fact that the original invasion was a naked act of aggression and the preparation of plans for fourteen American military installations are evidence of intentions that had nothing to do with protecting the people of Iraq.

    How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
