When last we visited S. 1867 Obama was ‘unhappy’ but had already rescinded his veto threat:
Obama wasn’t entirely happy with the bill. In a “signing statement” he said he was signing it “despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”ï¿½
Despite his unhappiness, this past Sunday, while most of America was putting itself back together, the President quietly signed the bill into law.
Jackass. Same for the Congress.; bunch of fuckin’ jackasses. I’m all up with Montanna on this.
An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention.
Well…I guess that’s okay then.
Except…excuse me here..but how could an Act of Congress obviate Sixth Amendment rights?
Should Congress even attempt said nonsense it seems obvious to me that the People would in turn need to head to WDC and physically drag the jackasses out of their chambers, give them a swift boot in their collective asses and start fresh; such a move by Congress would be an overt act of war on the Republic and the American people and should be treated as such.
