really liked it

Here is the inside story of America's abandonment of its own principles (habeus corpus, rules against cruel and unusual punishment) in its reaction to 9/11. The abuses are well documented and presented in the form of personal stories. I even developed a modest sense of empathy toward Cheney as I understood his fears (note: VERY modest).
