you [if you're paying close attention] must realize that the discretion in question is not really regarding traditional distinction between foreign and domestic but discretion regarding who we consider terrorist. All arguments from people like Turner ultimately lead to "but we are in a state of war against terrorism!", therefore what Turner is ultimately defending is the President's unchecked power to ambiguously determine who is to be designated "enemy" at any time, anywhere..
Good analysis JohnRobb!
Turner is tricky... well schooled in Bush/Cheney speak.
His command use of para Constitutional 'founders' documents, letters, diaries to interpret 'intent' is formidable.
I would LOVE to see him go head to head with Tom Woods.
Let's Get this party STARTED!!! Somebody PM Tom Woods and put him on to this video... maybe we can get a response/retort to Turner.
