Agreed. Jobs was (arguably) the greatest CEO of the modern business era.

Perhaps. As I assume you know, that derives from the miltary acronym fubar, which dates to WWII, if not earlier.

Smokin' Joe Frazier. If Frazier had been born 20 years earlier and Marciano 20 years later, it would have been Joe who was the undefeated heavyweight champ.

NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2012

Quote

PAGE 657

(b) APPLICABILITY TO UNITED STATES CITIZENS AND LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—
(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.
(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

So the executive is not required to hold citizens or lawful aliens indefinitely without trial, but can choose to do so: Seems to demand a challenge in court. And that brings to mind the fact that one of the republican presidential debaters proposes to remove judges who defend the US Constitution too vigorously.
