Here's two things that might cause your head to explode:
1. If you read my book, "Tear Down This Myth" (and who didn't? :-) ), then you know that the villain of the story is actually not so much Ronald Reagan (although he has his moments) as Grover Norquist, founder of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project and leader of the warped "Reaganism" movement of endless tax cuts and knee-jerk militarism. That's why you may be as stunned as I was that when it comes to trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other 9/11 suspects in a civilian court in New York, we're on the same side:
All the cowering from conservatives embarrassed former conservative Republican U.S. Rep. Bob Barr, Libertarian presidential candidate David Keene and Grover Norquist, chairman of the American Conservative Union. They issued a statement saying, "The scaremongering about these issues should stop," and "civilian courts are the proper forum for terrorism cases."
