a page from Ashcroft’s book

Morocco’s reaction to the bombings of last weekend: Speeding through Parliament new anti-terror laws that limit civil liberties. It took years of efforts by human rights activisists to gain those liberties under the old regime, and now that they are in place under the current king, they’re going to get severely curtailed. Will it help?

    Maybe they can wrap it in some verbiage to make it more appealing… like “Patriot Act” … oops that’s taken.

    I was very sorry to hear about the bombings in Marocco. I am just amazed that Bush keeps on talking up war. When will he realise that war isn’t going to change this?

    Excellent analysis on the same subject from the FT
