Senate Approves Limiting Rights of U.S. Detainees

Disgusting. How completely Un-American does it seem to detain people without even having to explain why? I guess if people are allowed to challenge their detentions, we might find out that they're not all terrorists, and then maybe we would lose the stomach to support torturing them. This is also a convenient way for the Senators who actually were smart enough to vote against torture to still go along with their pro-torture party and administration by keeping it hidden. Assholes.

This is disgusting, John. You are totally correct on this one.

I'm totally correct on all of them, but thanks for noticing this one in particular.

What I really don't understand is how supposedly reasonable people can support dividing people into "us" and "them". Non-citizens should be give all the same considerations that citizens are given. If you're dealing with two suspected criminals, and one is American, what possible justification is there for treating one with one set of rules and the other with a different set? Of course, Bush is busy trying to reduce the rights of citizens as well, I know, e.g. Jose Padilla.

"I'm totally correct on all of them, but thanks for noticing this one in particular." wheeeeee....good one.

Yeah, this one really got to me. How about I, as an American citizen and taxpayer, would like for our government to explain why these men are being detained. After all, it's being done in my name and with my money.
