The report goes on to talks about how this is nothing new for the american military, but Padillia's case is the first to come before the courts because he is an American citizen.

More MSM people co-opting 24

Crooks and Liars has the story. People like Rush Limbaugh, throught he may be a fan, co-opts the voice of the creater and uses that voice to damand his viewers read 24 how he wants them too.

Media Matters has more.

This is the best quote of them all:

I'll tell you one thing, Bill. The average American out there loves the
show 24. OK? They love Jack Bauer. They love 24. In my mind, that's as close to
a national referendum that it's OK to use tough tactics against high-level Al
Qaeda operatives as we're going to get. OK?

Really? I had no idea that watching 24 was a vote for torture. Some how i think you are full of shit.
