There are so many things wrong with this post by Katherine at Obsidian Wings that I don’t quite know where to begin.
No, it’s not that the post is flawed, it’s just what is reported it so wrong in so many ways it makes one’s head spin.
Read. Be very dismayed. This is a bill – giving all but implicit approval to torture (so long as it’s not done by us…that would, of course, be wrong…) that specifically exempts itself from judicial oversight.
That old Marbury vs. Madison thingee??? Ancient history; dusty.
It’s also designed to be retroactive, which is troubling as well. Again, musty old ex post facto laws…
And this wonderous bill is sponsored by the third highest ranking Republican in the US: Dennis Hastert. Yes, the same Hastert who intimated – and refused to repudate his comment – that George Soros was being funneled money from drug cartels.
And Kerry’s losing?????
