No consideration

In the current national security climate, the following quotation seems to describe the opinion of some Americans -- possibly even some members of government.

So who wrote it?

... Where the ultimate decision concerning the safety of one's country is to be taken, no consideration of what is just or unjust, merciful or cruel, praiseworthy or shameful, should be permitted; on the contrary, putting aside every other reservation, one should follow in its entirety the policy that saves its life and preserves its liberty.
The answer is in the comments.
