Soiling the Constitution

Please read this: Torture Bill States Non-Allegiance To Bush Is Terrorism

“Buried amongst the untold affronts to the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and the very spirit of America, the torture bill contains a definition of ‘wrongfully aiding the enemy’ which labels all American citizens who breach their ‘allegiance’ to President Bush and the actions of his government as terrorists subject to possible arrest, torture and conviction in front of a military tribunal.”

In the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which you can access at The Library of Congress is this terrible line (see section 950j):

(b) Provisions of Chapter Sole Basis for Review of Military Commission Procedures and Actions- Except as otherwise provided in this chapter and notwithstanding any other provision of law (including section 2241 of title 28 or any other habeas corpus provision), no court, justice, or judge shall have jurisdiction to hear or consider any claim or cause of action whatsoever, including any action pending on or filed after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, relating to the prosecution, trial, or judgment of a military commission under this chapter, including challenges to the lawfulness of procedures of military commissions under this chapter.
