Re "McCain's terror errors," Opinion, June 19
Rosa Brooks can't recognize Barack Obama's "Sept. 10 mind-set" because she suffers from the same affliction.
Obama, the Supreme Court and Brooks would discard a centuries-old tradition that allows enemy combatants to be detained without trial for the duration of hostilities. This is the real common-sense approach to terrorists -- keeping them off the battlefield so they can't kill any more of our citizens, at home or abroad. Brooks should have heeded her own advice: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
