Thomas Jefferson

À tous ceux qui veulent la fermeture de Guantanamo… À toux ceux qui défendent Mohamed Harkat et Adil Charkaoui… Extrait d'une lettre de Thomas Jefferson, père fondateur des États-Unis et co-auteur de la déclaration d'indépendance:

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."
