When does an alleged military hero turned Senator become a serious threat to the country he served? When he introduces a bill (PDF) titled “Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010” that if passed, would change this country from a “Democracy” to a military dictatorship.
I’ve been putting this off, thinking that because of its insanity, there was no way this could possibly happen, but as the past decade has shown, anything illegal can become de facto when a blatantly corrupt Congress screws the country it allegedly serves.
It seems Senator John McCain has gone off the deep end. On March 4, McCain and Senator Joe Lieberman introduced the 12-page bill that leaves plenty of room to give the President the power to order the arrest, interrogation, and imprisonment of anyone, including U.S. citizens, indefinitely — simply because they suspect that he or she is affiliated with terrorism. It’s long past time for Senator McCain and Senator Lieberman to be removed from politics once and for all.
Would that apply to the members of Congress that have allowed criminal Presidential administrations to destroy America’s civil rights and liberties? After all, Congress has been responsible for enabling — not to mention aiding and abetting — the terrorist actions of the past two Presidential administrations.
