Constitution, Schmonstitution


Cheney's push for legalizing torture and now Graham's ammendent that sandbags Habeas Corpus should have every American very concerned.

The fundamental tenets of this country are being slashed at and for what? To protect the country? That's tantamount to a snake eating it's own tail.

From an article over at TheHill.com:
"Graham says that his bill would eliminate numerous legal claims from prisoners that are tying up the resources of the Department of Justice and slowing the ability of interrogators to glean important information from the detainees."
So, we're setting flame to the constitution over a matter of judicial inconvenience? Nice.

Jane and Reddhedd are doing a great job at covering these items over at firedoglake.
