Recap Plus Warning

The Republic is Dead, Long Live the Republic.
By Juan Cole
Bush and a supine, cowardly Congress shredded the US Constitution on Tuesday, abolishing the right of a court review (habeas corpus) for some classes of suspect. Suspect, mind you, not proven criminal. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article15339.htm

===A Time Of Shame
National yawn as our rights evaporate’
By Keith Olbermann - Anchor, 'Countdown'
First thing this morning, the president signed into law the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which does away with habeas corpus, the right of suspected terrorists or anybody else to know why they have been imprisoned, provided the president does not think it should apply to you and declares you an enemy combatant. Video and transcript.http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article15342.htm

===Sowing the Seeds of Fascism in America
By Stan Goff
Author Stan Goff, a retired 26-year veteran of the U.S. Army Special Forces, sounds a warning call that many of the historical precursors of fascism—white supremacy, militarization of culture, vigilantism, masculine fear of female power, xenophobia and economic destabilization—are ascendant in America today. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article15340.htm
