Yes, I mostly concur.

Note, in particular, the idea that Davis will look silly if there's a terrorist attack soon.
Outrageous, mind-numbingly moronic, makes-you-want-to-weep conflation of the sort that characterised
the worst, 'with us or against us' rhetoric of the Bush administration: as if part of the debate
wasn't about whether these kinds of methods are even effective against terrorists, the idea seems to
be that their intention (if fighting terrorism really is the intent behind throwing out habeas
corpus) is enough to render them effective, so it's dangerous to oppose them. Stupid.
