"Enemy Belligerent" Act

McCain and Lieberman's "Enemy Belligerent" Act Could Set U.S. on Path to Military Dictatorship

The bill is only 12 pages long, but that is plenty of room to grant the president the power to order the arrest, interrogation, and imprisonment of anyone -- including a U.S. citizen -- indefinitely, on the sole suspicion that he or she is affiliated with terrorism, and on the president's sole authority as commander in chief.

Re: "Enemy Belligerent" Act

A bill proposed by his former opponent to empower the president??  Perhaps the problems we face are somewhere in the land way beyond party lines - ya think??   The oligarchy steps up to the plate.  Parties we don't need no stinking parties except to convince the people there is a choice.
