Certain words just jump right off the page at you....

Dan Froomkin's White House Watch column today has this little tidbit:
Sheryl Gay Stolberg writes in the New York Times:
President Obama told human rights advocates at the White House on Wednesday that he was mulling the need for a "preventive detention" system that would establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried, two participants in the private session said....
[emphasis added]

And Obama's supposedly a Constitutional law expert. Count me in the "whomp-jawed" column.
