"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Habeas Schmabeus

I'm listening to this episode on This American Life right now. And trying to keep my blood pressure down.

And wondering how hard it would be for Congress to pass a law outlawing these practices. It's not even a funding issue, a "support our troops buy mine-proof vehicles" issue, a "Don't leave the troops stranded without bullets in a war" issue.

It's a simple issue of law, and of lawlessness. How hard would this be to correct?
