It's no lie that our government detained a man in a foreign country, shipped him to Guantanamo and detained him for years without trial.
I have noticed an inability of late on the part of Americans to understand that we have laws and that when these are broken there should be consequences. Our present administration sets the (bad) tone.


From Christian Morgenstern's poem "Die unmögliche Tatsache" (The Impossible Fact):

Und er kommt zu dem Ergebnis:
Nur ein Traum war das Erlebnis.
Weil, so schliesst er messerscharf,
nicht sein kann, was nicht sein darf.

(And he comes to the conclusion:
His mishap was an illusion,
for, he reasons pointedly,
that which must not, can not be.)
