    Amid zero fanfare; "Zero" can declare you a "non person" and torture is a reasonably expected part of military detention And you thought Bush pushed the envelope to the absolute edge...

    It happened earlier this week, in a discreet ruling that attracted almost no notice and took little time. In fact, our most august defenders of the Constitution did not have to exert themselves in the slightest to eviscerate not merely 220 years of Constitutional jurisprudence but also centuries of agonizing effort to lift civilization a few inches out of the blood-soaked mire that is our common human legacy. They just had to write a single sentence.

    Here's how the bad deal went down. After hearing passionate arguments from the Obama Administration, the Supreme Court acquiesced to the president's fervent request and, in a one-line ruling, let stand a lower court decision that declared torture an ordinary, expected consequence of military detention, while introducing a shocking new precedent for all future courts to follow: anyone who is arbitrarily declared a "suspected enemy combatant" by the president or his designated minions is no longer a "person." They will simply cease to exist as a legal entity. They will have no inherent rights, no human rights, no legal standing whatsoever -- save whatever modicum of process the government arbitrarily deigns to grant them from time to time, with its ever-shifting tribunals and show trials.

    I think I'd like to see that order confirmed before I let loose a stream of invective.

    So much for Ms. Pelosi's desire to try Bushco for War Crimes. If bobo okays the same thing, he'll be the worst sort of hippocrite to do such a thing........ [loco]

    Doesn't mean he won't let the show go on... The obamatons won't even put 2 and 2 together. They're so riled up and ready to spill Buschco blood that the reality of what is going on can't even get through to them. And since when does he care if he looks hypocritical to the plebes... We're all just [loco] anyway! And since he can have us declared non-people the smileys are rather fitting me thinks. :rolleyes:
