It seems that this country is spinning out of control. We barely have the economy back on track, and now our interior minister is fighting ghosts with flamethrowers:

This link refers to an interview with him where he proclaims that:
  • Germany should create the status of 'enemy combatant' and allow interning 'dangerous elements'
  • The 'targeted killing of suspects' is not in discord with our constitution, but a 'legal problem' that hasn't been 'fully clarified'
I have to admit that while I was critical about the fact that the Bush-Administration skipped due process and a host of other essential liberties in the Guantamo/Black Interrogation Sites affair, I was not all-too-concerned -- after all, after the next election the entire thing would've been rolled back and similar madness made impossible for the next n years. I am quite shocked that our interior minister, in desparate need for some agenda, would like to outdo the Bush Administration exactly at a point in time where these policies should be thoroughly discredited.

Time to write a letter to the representative in the german congress...sigh....
