A nice reminder folks.

Once upon a time 'rendition' was a way of saying extradition, and therefore that it was a part of the rule of law. But then again, that is from a time before 9/11, when the full force of the Unitary Executive Principle made it clear that while there may have been "Extraordinary Renditions" during the ClintonestaEra, those were not the sort that had the special protection of 'when the president does it, it can not be illegal'.

So BillyBob says, Check It Out:Oh Noes!! Somebody Has Written Something Wrong on the Internets!!!!.

But most scary of all, will the Rulings of a Civilian President be allowed to over Rule a War President???
