"A government more dangerous to our liberty than is the enemy it claims to protect us from."
- Keith Olbermann
The more I think about the passing of "The Military Commissions Act," the more incensed I become.
Now that Bush has killed habeas corpus, any one of us can now be pulled off the street, deemed an enemy combatant, and then be locked away somewhere without trial.
According to Mary Benoit of the John Birch society:
"The bill authorizes a new system of military tribunals that would try persons designated 'unlawful military combatants' by the president. The term 'unlawful military combatants' is broadly defined and could include any person who is not in-step with the administration's policies on bringing 'democracy' to the world."
To my fellow left-wing bloggers: watch your back.
