Ashcroft's concentration camps for citizens

U.S. attorney general John Ashcroft is at it again. First he planned to establish an informer network exceeding the East German Stasi in coverage, and now he intends to establish detention camps for U.S. citizens deemed to be "enemy combatants". In normal times, such a plan would trigger immediate congressional hearings and reconsideration of his fitness for office; but these days nobody wants to be "unpatriotic" enough to question.

Once, in a fit of morbidness, I wondered: if the WTC was Bush/Ashcroft's Reichstag, what will be their Auschwitz? Perhaps we'll see soon enough...
