Another victory for Bush and a loss for humanity

Shockingly, as reported by the Associated Press, a federal appeals court ruled that foreign-born prisoners who are apprehended as terrorists may not challenge their detention and imprisonment. The U.S. government, in other words, may detain them indefinitely without trial, without proof of guilt, without even the semblance of humanity. This ruling directly supports the inhuman Military Commissions Act of 2006, which not only violates the Constitution; it also violates standards of justice that go back to 1215 CE.


Since we cannot trust that THIS Supreme Court will overturn this ruling, we have to push the 110th Congress to undo the harm of the 109th Congress and repeal the MCA.

Truly the MCA is a criminal document.
