White House Lost Their Minds
The White House doesn't know when to quit when they're behind.
U.S. citizens suspected of terror ties might be detained indefinitely and barred from access to civilian courts under legislation proposed by the Bush administration, say legal experts reviewing an early version of the bill.
A 32-page draft measure is intended to authorize the Pentagon's tribunal system, established shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks to detain and prosecute detainees captured in the war on terror. The tribunal system was thrown out last month by the Supreme Court.
This will be declared unconstitutional faster than Guantanamo Bay. If foreigners have a right to U.S. courts then U.S. citizen certainly do. Americans are ignorants to the rights of outsiders. When it comes to themselves that is another story. The administration is dealing with resistance on the domestic wiretaps. I doubt a president with a low approval rating can sell this convincingly to Americans.
Hat tip to Shakes.
