The abomination
One great thing about the Dems taking over: they will review the abominable Military Commissions Act. Welcome back, Constitution. Looking forward to seeing you again...

More on the Democratic attempts to rescue the rule of law from ThinkP:
Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) introduced legislation yesterday that would amend the existing law governing military tribunals of detainees. Among other things, the bill “seeks to give habeas corpus protections to military detainees” and narrow the definition of “unlawful enemy combatant” to individuals who directly participate in hostilities against the United States.

“The U.S. military called no witnesses, withheld evidence from detainees and usually reached a decision within a day as it determined that hundreds of men detained at Guantanamo Bay were ‘enemy combatants,’ according to a new report.”
