Since the Sept. 11 attacks, the Bush administration has repeatedly tried to dodge the Constitution while prosecuting the war on terror. In the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker, the Justice Department is once again attempting to trample the Bill of Rights � in this case, by denying Mr. Moussaoui the right to see evidence critical to his defense. The judge should not allow the government to have its way. . . .
[T]he war on terrorism has not repealed the Constitution, and Judge Brinkema must ensure that it applies fully in Mr. Moussaoui's case.
I agree completely with this Op-Ed piece from the New York Times.
