How They Really Think 

I don't know what amazes (and disgusts) me more - that Condi Rice actually believes this, that she actually had the cojones to say it out loud, or that she is actually still being paid with our tax dollars (via Suburban Guerrilla; emphasis supplied):
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice defended the unlimited detention of suspected terrorists saying, in an interview published on Tuesday, that it benefitted the United States and the entire world.

You can’t allow somebody to commit the crime before you detain them, because if they commit the crime, thousands of innocent people die,” she told the USA Today daily.

Reflect on that - our Secretary of State is openly in favor of detaining people who have committed no crime. There's a word for people who hold such beliefs, but Godwin's Law forbids me from revealing it.
