Unlawful Enemy

October 19, 2006 at 1:22 pm (Uncategorized)

  A few days ago a law was passed by the US governement that evaporates the rights of all Americans. It was given a fancy name, the Military Commissions Act of 2006, but in essence it is a law that is just ripping basic rights away.

   The law gives the President and  US government sweeping powers where anyone can be declared an enemy combattant, that anyone can be you. Rights that took many years to acquire, were just stripped away with one signature. With that one stroke of the pen the US no longer recognizes habeas corpus and they reserve the right to torture, how nice.

  Once again all this is being done in the name of terror. Sad how the world has changed and how much the US is getting away with, they are breaking intrenational laws and now just ripping away  rights in their own country. The President and his cronies get the ideas and the congress just rubber stamps it. October, 17th, 2006, will be known as the day justice and freedom died .

See link below for more on the law.
