(Opednews)-The case for impeachment just grew much stronger, with the US Supreme Court's powerful decision in Hamdan v Rumsfeld. In that decision, the justices didn't simply say that the President was wrong and in violation of U.S. and the international law in arbitrarily claiming that the Guantanamo detainees were not subject to the Geneva Convention on Treatment of Prisoners of War. The five-justice majority, which included conservative Anthony Kennedy, declared the President's bogus claim to have "special powers" as commander in chief in "time of war" to be just that--bogus.
Dans un commentaire sinistre, Gingrich déclarait que la Loi sur les commissions militaires n’était que le début. « Dans les quatre ou cinq ans qui viennent, nous allons nous retrouver à examiner des lois impliquant des droits civils dont nous n’aurions jamais rêvé parce que notre ennemi ne nous laissera pas le choix », a-t-il déclaré. Sa contrepartie démocrate ne s’est pas opposé ni n’a repris ses propos.
In a sinister commentary, Newt Gingrich declared that the new Military Commission law was only the beginning. `` In the next 4 to 5 years to come, we're gonna examine new laws about civil rights that we wouldn't thought of before because our enemy let us no choice. (YEAH RIGHT)`` His democrat counterpart didn't oppose to this commentary.
