GOP blast Gitmo decision, Graham willing to push for a constitutional amendment


www.politico.com

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) vowed Thursday to do everything in his power to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision on Guantanamo Bay detainees, saying that, “if necessary,” he would push for a constitutional amendment to modify the decision.

A former military prosecutor, Graham blasted the decision as “irresponsible and outrageous,” echoing the sentiments of many congressional Republicans and President Bush.

Earlier in the day, the court ruled 5-4 that suspected terrorists held by the U.S. military at Guantanamo Bay have the right to challenge their detention in federal court.

When talking to reporters Thursday afternoon, Graham cautioned that it he was still digesting the decision but said he was “looking at every way I can to modify this position,” including fighting to change the statute.

Here come the guns, I knew the Supreme Courts decision about Guantanamo would not be taken lightly. This is going to be a knock down drag out fight.

Are you kidding me? They are willing to ammend the constitution over this?

Well, it shows how desperate the war pigs are to keep control of their new world order.

Let them fail, miserably...

How can they argue with something that states ALL men are equal?
