    I don't know how the heck something like this could even make it into the imaginations of politicians let alone into a bill that could be passed today. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blo … _blog.html

    Pack your bags, gitmo is waiting with an empty room just for you. And it takes a comedian to be the one to speak out against it?!?! Like my title says, rest in peace freedom, you were loved and will be missed.... sad

    Saudi Arabia is looking nice this time of year roll

      Thanks for the link. We've been discussing this on another thread. I find it very disturbing that 93 senators voted for this and that Obama wanted to remove the section that protects American citizens. If he doesn't veto this, I hope he loses 2012 in a landslide - provided that whoever wins is against S1867. I wish the issue would come up in a GOP debate.

    I cannot believe this is even an option and that the Government is agreeing to halt all that America is...IF and it's a questionable if, Obama is wise, he will veto.

    I looked up the bill and read the language on it, and I encourage everyone that is concerned about it to read it exactly as is rather than to rely on interpretations. Library of congress will have the bill in its entirety. The bill is confusing frankly I can see how the opposing ideologies can see what they want to see in the bill. The most fearful part of the bill is the language that states until hostilities cease, which could until someone passes a new bill would keep this country in a perpetual state of war, and since war was never declared which congress should do anyway is crazy.

    We unfortunately over legislate everything liberals and conservatives. I see what the proponents of the bill are saying, I mean if a citizen of the US helps the enemy he/she should be subject to military courts, but as I stated in the previous paragraph war hasn't been declared so why do we need this legislation...sounds fishy to me or a total waste of time...

      It's beginning to look as if the Habeus is now a corpus!
