The Rock

Constitution printThe Constitution is the rock upon which our nation rests. We must follow it not only when it is convenient, but when fear and danger beckon in a different direction. To do less would diminish us and undermine the foundation upon which we stand.

-- Judge Lewis A. Kaplan of the US District Court in Manhattan, who barred testimony from a crucial witness in the first trial of a former Guantanamo detainee, New York Times, 7 October 2010
