Gonzales & Habeas Corpus

(This photo is from a Japanese-American internment camp.)
Torture is a dark sinister event that must be halted. Great shame has been brought on our nation because of this hideous practice. Torture is evil everywhere it's practiced and it must never be used for information, punishment, intimidation or for any of the other screwy reasons governments or 'freedom fighters' deploy it.

Also, from the mouth of our Attorney General, “…the Constitution doesn't say that every individual in the United States or every citizen has or is assured the right of habeas corpus. It doesn't say that. It simply says that the right of habeas corpus shall not be suspended.”
Alberto Gonzales

The Habeas Corpus Act 1679 came into being during the reign of King Charles II of England. It was adopted into our own constitution where it states, “The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.”

These words from Gonzales are frightening and un-American. It’s another reason why it’s time to get rid of these guys. Investigations leading to impeaching both the president and vice-president would be a wise and necessary action which would begin to repair our damaged democracy.
please listen....
