Future law students turn their backs on Alberto Gonzalez

In what is quite heartwarming, ballsy, and inspirational, a group of Georgetown University Law Students turned their backs on Alberto Gonzalez during a speech. The photos and description are priceless, and I applaud those students for making a stand against the administration's security policies.

Best quote from the article:

  • "When you're a law student, they tell you if say that if you can't argue the law, argue the facts. They also tell you if you can't argue the facts, argue the law. If you can't argue either, apparently, the solution is to go on a public relations offensive and make it a political issue... to say over and over again "it's lawful", and to think that the American people will somehow come to believe this if we say it often enough.*

In light of this, I'm proud of the very civil civil disobedience that was shown here today."
