Doublethink in Pakistan

The debate on whether or not the military courts should exist is no longer relevant after the two-year extension.*

The military courts were founded on the principles of safeguarding the judiciary alongside a means to deliver quick and efficient justice.**

From this editorial in The Nation (footnotes and emphases added)

* No longer relevant? All debate must end when the Constitution has been amended?

** "We had to destroy the village in order to save it."
