While we were all out doing our Christmas shopping, the highest court in the land quietly put the kibosh on a few more of the remaining shards of human liberty ... anyone who is arbitrarily declared a "suspected enemy combatant" by the president or his designated minions is no longer a "person." They will simply cease to exist as a legal entity. They will have no inherent rights, no human rights, no legal standing whatsoever -- save whatever modicum of process the government arbitrarily deigns to grant them from time to time, with its ever-shifting tribunals and show trials.
Makes you want to wave a flag in celebration of your overlords! Glad to hear Bush III, excuse me...Obama is changing things up. Oh boy, what a glorious democracy this nation has. One to be in awe of, for sure! Torture is A-okay, as long as the torteree is wearing a turban. Or...even if he's an American citizen accused of aiding terrorists (José Padilla (prisoner) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Fuck habeus corpus. That's not even in the constitution!
I can't wait until we hit the new golden age. It will be a doozy for sure.
Wow. We sure have gone far off, there is nothing like the Christmas in The Trenches thats going to happen again at this rate, thanks Obama for giving us all equality! We sure are going to appeal to the Afghanni people this way!
I'd love to see Glenn Beck or Bill O'Reilly slam Obama for this, that makes then huge hypocrites since they slammed him for letting the 9/11 suspects have a fair trial.
Land of the free, place where you had rights ! HAD ! Taking lessons from china l recon.....whats next/......

Junk angel;5177132And here I thought that human rights were cogent norms in a number of the international charters the US is part of. Call me confused.
Got a few more newsources on this? I wanna see what other media outlets say about this.
Ditto, I'd like to see some more (and more extensive) sources on this. It would be a pretty big fail/deception/lie/Uturn since the guy was all about undoing the injustice of what Bush brought about, and keeping strong to the old principles of the west/country of justice for all and all that.
I suppose I don't have to ask how much comensation and an option for US citizenship those 24 or so guys got that were released from Gitmo a week or so ago. :o (I know, nothing.. which is pathetic... lock them up, fail to be able to nail them on anything, give them proper legals tatus, leave them in limbo and then dump them, sorry... help them return/go to some country and pretend you didn't take away any time, respect/dignity or human rights from them. :cort: Might some be "bad guys"? Maybe? But how hard can it be to assign them proper legal status and prosecute them in court (US civil, militairy, international court... etc.)l.
I’ve read posts and bulletins about this on several sites. Doesn't looking good. Strange considering the President just won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Whats next eh?
Obama really has gone to far this time. I'm betting he's going to be impeached within the next 2 years if even that.
I hate to say this.
But each and every one of you is talking out of your ass. Besides, these people aren't human. Maybe you just have to see first hand what they do to understand that.
Let them sit in a jail for the rest of their days. If they want to blow up markets full of civilians because they belong to the opposite religious sect, then they pay the consequences.
We very rarely nab the wrong guy. And if we do, he's turned loose way before he gets on a plane for the western hemisphere.
Trial? I say we find a tree and a rope...but that's just me. Obama gets a brownie point on this one...that makes two in 11 months.
