Here’s Keith Olbermann’s commentary and an interview with a Constitutional Law Professor concerning the president’s recent signing into law of the bill that grants him the power to torture “enemy combattants” and to basically incarcerate and interrogate not only foreigners, but any American the administration wants to, without warrant, without council, without public hearing, and without trial by jury. The Bill of Rights died last week, and America was silent. The legacy of generations of men and women who died for this country was just sullied and tainted by the arrogance of our Dictator in Chief.
