Hey! you can't just detain someone because you want to

I wish this were funny. As the WAPO tells us Bush is lobbying Vietnam to release an American citizen they have detained without charges. "Some Bush administration officials suggest that the Vietnamese government may have evidence against Foshee, but they fault its failure to bring formal charges."

See, wouldn't it be nice for America to be outraged here? Wouldn't it be nice if we could chide VN on violating this person's civil liberties and pound our moral pulpit with authority?

Instead, the President and Vice President appear to tell other countries to act better than they do. Unbelievable.
