The resurrection of Habeas Corpus

 

Keith Olbermann of MSNBC’s Countdown on the Death of Habeas Corpus in the United StatesWe posted several articles in the past about the Republican Congress and the Bush Administration taking away the right of Habeas Corpus from American citizens in clear violation of the constitutional prohibitions against suspending it.

Nothing could be less American than a government that can indefinitely hold people in secret torture cells, take away their protections against horrific and cruel abuse, put them on trial based on evidence that they cannot see, sentence them to death based on testimony literally beaten out of witnesses, and then slam shut the courthouse door for any habeas petition, but that’s exactly what Congress just approved. – Christopher Anders, an ACLU Legislative Counsel

No more and never again!
