Bring Back Habeas Corpus

Hat Tip to F/C and Thomas Ware and everybody else who’s posted about this. Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) has introduced legislation to repeal last year’s infamous Military Commissions Act. With that law, Bush and his Harem (aka Congress) deleted the ancient legal concept of Habeas Corpus. Habeas Corpus dates back to 14th century England. George W. Bush was wrong to eliminate it; and now we have a chance to being it back.

Senator Dodd’s legislation is called the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007. If you have any questions, please check out this short video for more information on this bill and why America urgently needs it.

Don’t get complacent and think “it can't happen here.” It can, and it’s already in progress. Please click here to become a citizen co-sponsor of the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007. America needs your help.

The MCA as it is is prima facie unconstitutional, but who knows how many will suffer while that gets worked out in the Courts?

Senator Dodd's bill is the best chance we have of correcting this horrid wrong.

Good job posting this, Tom. I'm going to do some detailed checking on this stuff, and get busy writing letters to Reps. and Senators!

Jolly Roger: I agree, this should be dealt with in Congress instead of waiting for the courts to overturn it. I think this issue cuts across party lines, to an extent, and Republicans hopefully won't want to commit political suicide by fighting Habeas Corpus.

Snave: Thanks. There's lots of work to be done.
