Bush signs Military Commissions Act

George Bush has taken the war to that which apparently really does hate America - habeas corpus:
This nation is patient and decent and fair, and we will never back down from the threats to our freedom.
There is really nothing much more ironic than those that have no idea what it is.

A country that can hold you without warrant, try you quickly before a panel of military officers, to be defended by another miltary officer pointed by the panel, where evidence based on hersay, coercion and torture can be admitted is not a country that is based on Freedom.

When I was a kid, that described the USSR, now it describes the USA. Thomas Jefferson must be spinning in his grave.
