They Have Killed Habeas Corpus
From a diary at Daily Kos
The 109th Congress accomplished nothing, but it did find the time to roll over on habeas corpus, at the command of the radical conservatives in the Bush administration, who want nothing more than to govern according to the fantasy that the enemy du jour
- whoever it may be - is The Greatest Threat the Republic Has Ever Faced.
Government, for them, is little more than a high-stakes role playing game. And now they've rolled the dice and killed one of the fundamental rights of Western civilization.
A proud day.
