ACLU slams Senators: The Constitution is not ‘optional’

Four U.S. Senators are pursuing legislation they believe would fix the "mistake" President Obama made with the man who allegedly failed to blow up a Christmas Day flight into Detroit.

That "mistake" was treating him like a serious criminal, tossing him in jail and planning a trial.

Nevertheless, Senators Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), Susan Collins (R-ME), Robert Bennett (R-UT) and John Ensign (R-NV) are pushing legislation that would require civilian authorities to consult with intelligence leaders when taking an accused terrorist into custody.

1. C'mon. It's Joe. Joe Lieberman. What chance do you think Harry Reid is going to let THIS
beauty make its way out of Committee to a full Senate vote? Quid pro quo.

3. Like
The way that the German police had to consult with the Gestapo, or Russian law enforcement had to consult with the KGB?

Never would have thought that Collins was a police stater, maybe the people of Maine need to really look at her.

Lieberman, Bennett, and Ensign, now those three I can see as advocates of a police state!
