It's official. There is now an exception to justice in the United
States. For all intents and purposes, the Bush administration can
arrest anyone in the world for any reason and keep them in prison
indefinitely. There's only one catch -- the president has to claim the
person arrested is a 'terrorist suspect.'
Luckily for Bush, he isn't required to actually prove
anything and the arrested -- now referred to as a 'detainee' -- has no
way to challenge it. Being declared a 'terrorist suspect' is a trial
and sentence in itself.
Reading the opening paragraph of the Associated Press, you'd get the idea that the bill Bush signed yesterday was about putting terrorists on trial.
(AP) â Some of the most notorious names in the war on terror are headed
toward prosecution after President Bush signed a law Tuesday
authorizing military trials of terrorism suspects.
there used to be some sort of magic shield around terrorists that kept
law enforcement from bringing them into an actual court of law or
something. Damned terrorists with their special protections!
