You know, I do like this blog to be filled with real analysis of the issues, but sometimes things just don’t make sense. The coming evisceration of the Constitution at the hands of the National Defense Authorization Act is a great example:
For those of you that are just now catching up on this, the House basically voted last night to suspend the right to due process, the right to a trial by a jury of an accuser’s peers, and the right to habeas corpus. And now that the so-called “war on terror” has been expanded to include not only al-Qaeda but also the Taliban and other “associated forces.” Given the war on terrorism has become an open-ended war with civil liberties being offered by Congress on the alter of the “national security,” this provision will be no doubt be abused; if not by this administration than the next.
Sometimes you just have to ask. What the hell, guys!?
