Tom Toles for June 06, 2004
Man: I think I want to see a lawyer. Officer: No lawyer for you. Man: What about a judge? Officer: Sorry. Man: How long can you hold me like this? Officer: Until the war on terror is over. Man: When is that? Officer: When we say so. Man: So you're calling me an "enemy combatant"? Officer: No, I'm calling you an "American combatant." But there aren't enough of you. So put your helmet back on, it's time for another Baghdad patrol. Tom: Should have through of all this before you showed up at that training camp.
