  •  the Patriot Act has turned everything on its head (2+ / 0-)

    kamakirii, Judgment at Nuremberg

    so that when we look to precedents, we have to realize they mean little to this administration. They constantly rewrite history so that Condie Rice with a PhD in Russian Studies makes the assertion that Nazi Werewolves (insurgents) remained a danger to Allied Forces for several years after VE Day and Cheney has asserted the same foolishness.
    The Patriot Act gave the groundwork for the current mess with the US Attorneys and no one knows what other "sleeper" provisions are in the Act which will be pulled out at the last minute.
    We have already seen individual freedoms eroded extraconstitutionally. I still think this is Cheney attempting to rewrite the Nixon histories and the subsequent judicial opinions.
