"In Terror Cases, [US] Administration Sets Own Rules"

I haven't written about the so-called 'war on terror' in quite a while and specifically some of the ways in which the [current] US administration is waging this 'war', but this excellent article in today's New York Times essentially reaches the conclusion used as its title, which I quote above.

It makes sobering reading, but it is (very sadly) completely unsurprising. The current US administration seems to lurch from one euphemism to another and is becoming increasingly bankrupt morally; I wish I could convince myself that I am guilty of hyperbole.
