Gleanings from the blogosphere, Sept. 18

This principle is just axiomatic -- the fact that someone is accused by the Bush administration of being a terrorist or suspected by the administration of working with terrorists does not, in fact, mean that they are a "terrorist." There is a distinction between (a) being accused or suspected by the Bush administration of working with Al Qaeda and (b) actually being in cahoots with Al Qaeda and being a "terrorist."
Presumption of innocence and the right to a fair and open trial are values that can not be compromised. They underpin our entire society and must be protected.
