While everyone is debating the finer points of S.1867,It could be wothwhile to look at the way people have been treated before this bill was passed.
How about the way this young African recalls his time in US custody-from Pakistan to Cuba.

So my hands were tied in the back and a guard held me by a chain.
We were twenty, with maybe fifteen guards.
They covered our eyes and ears, so I couldn’t see much.
When they took off our masks, we were at an airport, with big helicopters.
Then the movie started. Americans shouted: ‘You’re under arrest, UNDER CUSTODY OF THE US ARMY! DON’T TALK, DON’T MOVE OR WE’LL SHOOT YOU!’ An interpreter was translating into Arabic.
Then they started beating us – I couldn’t see with what but something hard. People were bleeding and crying. We had almost passed out when they put us in a helicopter.
Warning,graphic but-
Read the whole page if you can.

Now apply this to anywhere in the world.
The USA gov can now steal people anywhere in the world,and lock them up without a trail forever.
That means they can kill you in custody and no one will know or be allowed to know.

Land of the free...
It wasn't supposed to be this way IMO.

Today we mourn the passing of a free country. RIP America 4 July 1776-15 Dec 2011. 235 years you lasted as land of the free, home of the brave. When the brave were replaced by the politically correct, the free were enslaved.

The bill passed in conference was HR 1540 which nullifies that power.
