  •  The Obama policy (7+ / 0-)

    can not limit the right to seek a writ of habeas corpus.

    This is indeed one of the major flaws in the policy I identified.Instead of incorporating a judicial review process in the regime,  the policy merely recognizes the right to habeas .

    It is inefficient and possibly problematic.

    My hunch is that the reason it is not expressly incorporated into the policy is a political one. But I think the politics of "terrpr" is long past. The Obama team is miscalculating the politics on this point, in my view.

    Everybody dies alone.
