A few points from memory:
Jane Mayer also said that a very large part of the problem now is due to the fact that the Bush administration screwed things up so badly by torturing prisoners. Now we can't use much of the evidence we have against them in court. If we could, we could trie them in our regular court system
Listen to her On Fresh Air.
I don't believe that all or even most of the Bush administration believes what they said the Constitution meant. I am pretty sure they they knew they were at the limit of what they could argue it meant - which is exactly why we they made the cases they did.
Too many of them should be in prison, and a few deserve to be tortured - starting with Bush. He should be water boarded until he admits (figures out for Daniel and others) that it is torture.
