Does anybody know the latest on Bush's effort to allow US citizens
to be detained indefinitely? The draft of the latest bill was supposed to go before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, but I haven't seen anything recent on it.

Bush submits new terror detainee bill

By ANNE PLUMMER FLAHERTY, Associated Press Writer Fri Jul 28, 6:53 PM ET

WASHINGTON - U.S. citizens suspected of terror ties might be detained indefinitely and barred from access to civilian courts under legislation proposed by the Bush administration, say legal experts reviewing an early version of the bill.

A 32-page draft measure is intended to authorize the
Pentagon's tribunal system, established shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks to detain and prosecute detainees captured in the war on terror. The tribunal system was thrown out last month by the Supreme Court.

Administration officials, who declined to comment on the draft, said the proposal was still under discussion and no final decisions had been made.

Senior officials are expected to discuss a final proposal before the
Senate Armed Services Committee next Wednesday.

3. That leaves plenty of time to round up the 'extremist terrorist'......
Democrats and move them to internment camps before the November elections. Bushco has absolutely and totally crossed the line of ABUSE OF POWER. Democracy is dead, welcome to the dictatorship.
