"The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times." = Judge Kennedy
What bothers me is that this even needs to be SAID. How the hell did we get so screwed up as a nation that the idea above actually had to go to the SUPREME COURT? And MIGHT have been voted down - it was actually CLOSE.
This USED to be elementary school civics. I mean, they've been holding people for SIX YEARS. And not charging them with anything. You can't hold people indefinitely and refuse to say what for. Holy crap. What were other four thinking? That the Almighty Government can just anything they damned well please?
I like this, too:
"The White House had no immediate comment on the ruling. White House press secretary Dana Perino, traveling with President Bush in Rome, said the administration was reviewing the opinion."
He's "reviewing the opinion"? For what? Does he think that he has the final say over it?
He probably DOES think that.
