Yo! Carl, Read The Constitution!!!!
I'd like to invite you to read the Constitution of the United States of America, as you made it apparent in your diatribe today that you haven't recently.
By uttering the words:
"The habeas corpus language in this bill is as legally abusive of rights guaranteed in the Constitution as the actions at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and secret prisons that were physically abusive of detainees,"
You've proven that you don't have a clue who the Constitution was written for.For your benefit I'll post the preamble to The Constitution.
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Notice, Mr. Levin (along with Mr. Kennedy) that it doesn't say "for the terrorists in Iraq or Afghanistan", it does provide for a "common defense" which I'd guess probably does mean against terrorists, not a defense lawyer FOR them.
If you reread what you two said today after passing the detainee legislation from an objective standpoint, you'll understand why America hasn't trusted your party to provide for our defense of late.
