You have noticed the little quicklink that ran at the end of September simply stating “R.I.P. America: 1776-2006”. Well, consider that coffin good and buried, because President George W. Bush finally got around to signing the formerly urgent legistlation known as the Military Commissions Act of 2006, a charming little document that (no joke) gives the executive branch the ability to suspend the fundamental cornerstone of human liberty known as Habeus Corpus.
I’ve resisted posting Keith Olbermann clips recently(as he is grating as often as he is brilliant), but his take on this historic
mistake moment was too good to pass up.
