It's hard to conceive of a more direct and devastating failure of the separation of powers than Congress, the president, and the courts all agreeing that the government can kidnap people and send them off to be tortured on mere suspicion of terrorism, that the innocent harmed through this process have no access to any kind of legal remedy, and that the perpetrators themselves have proved thus far to be immune from prosecution, as long as the government asserts that the matter is a "state secret."

Anybody think we don't live in a bannana republic?
