I consider the "supermax" prison system to be a monstrosity. Don't get me wrong - I do believe there are people who are such a danger to themselves and others that they need to be sequestered from the rest of society. It's just that I believe the strictures and privations of the supermax system only serve to make those SOBs even crazier, and that doesn't benefit anyone.
And yet, here I am arguing that the our domestic supermax prisons are viable alternative to Guantanamo because at least there the Guantanamo detainees would have some access to counsel and some protection under the law.
Man, Bush really did a number on all of our souls, didn't he?
