According to the summary, the bill sets out a comprehensive policy for the detention, interrogation and trial of suspected enemy belligerents who are believed to have engaged in hostilities against the United States by requiring these individuals to be held in military custody, interrogated for their intelligence value and not provided with a Miranda warning.
The bill makes no distinction between citizens and non-citizens or where they were apprehended, whether it be Dallas or Saigon.
When two American Senators can introduce a bill that deprives American citizens of their rights, sequesters them away on military bases, detains them indefinitely, and uses the military to interrogate them without any consideration for due process, we must wonder how far we have gone down the road to dictatorial slavery.
Neither McCain nor Lieberman are stupid. They know the powers this bill will hand over to the government, the rights this bill will take away from every American citizen worldwide.
This should be a clear indication to us all that our Republic is near its end, that the "American experiment" is just about finished, done in by dedicated Progressives and Socialists like these two anti-American traitors.
