No Habeas Corpus To Our Enemies

Published by at 9:27 am under All General Discussions

Prisoners of war, especially illegal combatants as we have in this war, have never been offered the rights of US Citizens (where is the logic in that liberal concept?). One way to keep the liberal’s mistaken alliances with the terrorists in the news is to keep the new Law on military tribunals in the news. And the administration did just that by notifying the DC Court District Court is must, by Law, drop all cases involve habeas corpus petitions:

Moving quickly to implement the bill signed by President Bush this week that authorizes military trials of enemy combatants, the administration has formally notified the U.S. District Court here that it no longer has jurisdiction to consider hundreds of habeas corpus petitions filed by inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.

In a notice dated Wednesday, the Justice Department listed 196 pending habeas cases, some of which cover groups of detainees. The new Military Commissions Act (MCA), it said, provides that “no court, justice, or judge” can consider those petitions or other actions related to treatment or imprisonment filed by anyone designated as an enemy combatant, now or in the future.

That should get the liberals spewing!
