Secret Logic

DoJ attorneys are now trying to deprive a person of liberty not only based on secret evidence, but on secret legal arguments:
ATTORNEYS FOR the Justice Department appeared before a federal judge in Washington this month and asked him to dismiss a lawsuit over the detention of a U.S. citizen, basing their request not merely on secret evidence but also on secret legal arguments. The government contends that the legal theory by which it would defend its behavior should be immune from debate in court.
This seems to exemplify the current administration's audacity: they're constanly pushing the bounds in whatever area not only beyond the seemly, but beyond what I would consider even conceivable to a reasonable person.

I guess that's what we're dealing with: unreason, and unreality. Scary times.
