Olbermann to America - ‘kiss your freedom goodbye’
Olbermann demonstrates how - thanks to the new Military Commissions Act (pdf), which Congress passed without even reading - Americans can kiss their freedom goodbye.
Habeas Corpus now suffers from Rigor Mortis, effectively leaving intact only one of the first Ten Amendments, fondly remembered as the Bill of Rights.
"As you can see, even without Habeas Corpus, at least one tenth of the Bill of Rights - I guess that's the 'Bill of Right', now - remains virtually intact. Number three is still safe."For now.
