“So who is harboring terrorists? If states that harbor terrorists are terrorist states, according to the Bush doctrine, what do we conclude? We conclude exactly what Kissinger was kind enough to say: such doctrines are unilateral. They are not intended as norms of international law; they are doctrines that grant the United States the right to use force and violence and to harbor terrorists, but not anyone else. For the powerful, crimes are those that others commit”
