Dahlia Lithwick on the "freeing" of supposed über-terrorist / enemy combatant Yaser Esam Hamdi to Saudi Arabia:
Hamdi's name stood for the proposition that the Bush administration couldn't run roughshod over the courts and the law in its pursuit of the war on terror. It now stands for precisely the opposite: With a yawn and a shrug, the administration sidestepped the courts and the judicial process once again, abandoning this criminal prosecution altogether and erasing the episode from our national memory.

Just in case you needed another excuse to not like the Bush administration . . .
