Just spotted one of Fox News's typical "frame our opinion in the form of a question so we're not technically advocating it" questions, which stated, "Does the president want Ron Paul to win the bid.

Not bad. But let's combine that with others, to really hit him int he foreign policy area where he's lost points with the Republican base. Such as, "Do Zawahiri and Ahmadinejad want Ron Paul to win the Republican nomination?"

Guess "supporting the troops" only goes so far.

It doesn't matter how badly the government's case falls apart: once convicted, you have to prove your innocence beyond a reasonable doubt.

Isn't that an interesting comic storyline? A cop who knowingly sends someone to death row dies in a car accident and won't be allowed into the afterlife until he's helped falsely convicted people prove their innocence?

Same economic motivations, same reasons to avoid the "legal process." Same attempt at a solution to solve the problem. But let's the same solution another whack. It didn't work then, but I don't see why doing the same thing wouldn't work now.

An interesting look at one downside of market-provided education. Of course the FBI was interested in learning more about terrorism and Islamic extremists and naturally any experts they did have were assigned to active investigations.

The problem here isn't only that the FBI has crappy instructors educating them about Islamic extremists. It's that a large industry has evolved of self-styled Islamic extremist "experts" who ply their wares and soak up DHS money intended for law enforcement agencies to train and learn about extremism. And there's no empiricism about these lessons, no rigorous studies, it's just made up nonsense designed to play on fears.
