    2006 Bill of Wrongs

    I love those year-end roundups—ubiquitous annual lists of greatest films and albums and lip glosses and tractors. It's reassuring that all human information can be wrestled into bundles of 10. In that spirit, Slate proudly presents, the top 10 civil liberties nightmares of the year:"

    "10. Attempt to Get Death Penalty for Zacarias Moussaoui
    "9. Guantanamo Bay
    "8. Slagging the Media
    "7. Slagging the Courts
    "6. The State-Secrets Doctrine
    "5. Government Snooping
    "4. Extraordinary Rendition
    "3. Abuse of Jose Padilla
    "2. The Military Commissions Act of 2006
    "1. Hubris"
