5. I doubt it is just Senators. Why would they come up with this on their own?

There is something very odd about this. I think Amy Goodman or the ACLU lawyer said it was 'sudden' and 'rushed through'.

While it's true that what we now have is just as bad, and in the case of political assassinations eg, this president has already ordered several of them, which is way worse than detention where at least an innocent person some day, might get some justice. But ordering the killing of American citizens without charge or trial, frankly I have no words to describe how I feel about THIS PRESIDENT, the one we thought would begin the process of turning all this around, has so betrayed that trust we placed in him.

Still, why add more bad law that will have to be rescinded some day anyhow, IF we are to preserve this democracy? I really would like to know whose idea this was, and as Amy asked, is there money in it somehow? Maybe Halliburton needs to build more cages? Cheney maybe on behalf of his corporate friends? He was on Capitol Hill recently.

Very strange to be pushing this especially with the election coming up.

Thank you for the links, btw.
