From Jeff Har­rell at The Shape of Days, on secret prisons.

…it comes down to trust.

Do we trust that there are enough checks and bal­ances? Do we trust that there’s enough over­sight? Do we trust, fun­da­men­tal­ly, that these excess­es we jus­ti­fy in the name of the pub­lic good will nev­er be turned against us?

That’s a hard­er ques­tion. And one I’ll have to think about some more before I’m ready to draw a conclusion.
