God Bless The Supreme Court!

High Court ruling may delay war crimes trials

Before I pull the key quote, I need to note something here.

Spin.

This is the second iteration of this story.

Same URL as the first. Which means Newspeak is in full effect.

I didn’t screensnap or otherwise save the first iteration. I now regret that. For it was a ringing endorsement of inalienable human rights.

This spun headline makes it seem like a setback in the “War on Terror.”

Here is the quote:

Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the court, said, “The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.”

That deserves stark repetition:

The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times

Is anyone in our government listening?
