Quote of the Day: A Professor’s Practical Perspective

[T]he imperatives of law enforcement distract soldiers and intelligence agents from their primary war-fighting mission. We don’t want our soldiers pausing on hostile battlefields to read detainees Miranda warnings, take down witness statements, and collect evidence in plastic baggies. They should remain focused on finding and killing al Qaeda terrorists.

— Professor John Yoo, in an op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal.
