  •  Ah, but we do NOT have habeas corpus (0+ / 0-)
    And he's got all the rights that every citizen has, including habeas corpus.
    MCA '06 & MCA '09 are still in effect.  That means NO habeas corpus rights for anyone.

    THAT is STILL illegal and unconstitutional..., as are Patriot Act & FISA fiasco '08, AUMF, and 'office of faith-based initiatives.'  All of them should have been repealed the first week Obama was in office during his first term.  Instead, before he was in office a week drones were dropping bombs in Pakistan, he's now claimed AUMF applies to him, too, which (he and his lawyers say) gives him authority to drop bombs from drones on anyone.

    It was illegal and unconstitutional when Dumbya was doing it, and it's STILL illegal and unconstitutional now that Obama's doing it.  One would think a con law prof would know better....

    See the videos I posted in joanneleon's excellent diary a short time ago.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
