A quote to enjoy

[US Representative Pete] Hoekstra said he could not see a clear moral distinction between denying the due process of the American justice system to terrorist combatants on the one hand, and the administration’s covert activities in Pakistan (which Hoekstra said he supports) on the other. In war, he said, it is acceptable to hold enemy combatants until hostilities are concluded, and if we’re at war then that’s what we ought to do. “If this isn’t a war, then what are we doing assassinating people with no due process?” he asked. “Morally, where does that stand in comparison with waterboarding?”
