"Is that our message to the world? That we are a government of laws except when it is inconvenient? If so, then what was done in the name of security has greatly harmed security.

Have we helped our cause when - with the rest of the world when they come to believe we have sunk to using the tactics of those who oppose us, when we no longer can be trusted to practice what we preach? Is this what we want the world to know about us? More importantly, is it what we want our children to know?"
