JUSTICE DEAD IN AMERICA, JULY 4TH, 2003
At first, I tried to take a calm view of the prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay. It was only a temporary exercise in hysteria, I thought. Surely justice will prevail eventually. After all, hasn't America always fessed up and apologised later when it was wrong? Didn't hundreds of thousands of white Americans die to end black slavery? Didn't women win the vote in America without having to starve themselves in prison or throw themselves under horses? Isn't most of America now penitent for interning the Japanese, for the Trail of Tears, for segregation, the Klan, McCarthyism and even Kent State?

Constant readers, I was wrong. Justice is dead in America. It lies in an unmarked grave in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
