Hear, hear!

I strongly believe that as soon as we start eroding the rights and civil liberties that we hold so dear, the terrorists have won. Detaining people indefinitely without trial, even a trial in camera, without them knowing why they have been detained or what the evidence is against them is a clear breach of civil liberties. This is exactly the sort of thing that our government criticises other countries for. What possible excuse is there for thinking that this is reasonable behaviour for a civilised democracy to indulge in?
