Bill of Rights? Administration says - Not during war time.

And here it is declassified documents from Bush administration lawyers which reach the conclusion that the Bill of Rights has no power over the Executive Branch during war-time:
Yoo Torture Memo

It's really disturbing, these are actual quotes from the memo:

...our Office recently concluded that the Fourth Amendment had no application to domestic military operations.....

We conclude that the restrictions outlined in the Fifth Amendment simply do not address actions the Executive takes in conducting a military campaign against the Nation's enemies.

If the Bill of Rights do not apply to the Executive Branch, then what does? His lawyers have systematically made him into a Despot, (a single authority, which rules with absolute political power).

Let me quote from our Declaration of Independance what our responsibility as United States Citizens is:

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
