The concept of "terrorist ties"

is unclear, and based on it, the Bush Regime wishes to take away a good chunk of your legal rights.

WASHINGTON - U.S. citizens suspected of terror ties might be detained indefinitely and barred from access to civilian courts under legislation proposed by the Bush administration, say legal experts reviewing an early version of the bill. ...
The administration's proposal, as considered at one point during discussions, would toss out several legal rights common in civilian and military courts, including barring hearsay evidence, guaranteeing "speedy trials" and granting a defendant access to evidence. The proposal also would allow defendants to be barred from their own trial and likely allow the submission of coerced testimony. ...
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England are expected to discuss the proposal in an open hearing next Wednesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Military lawyers also are scheduled to testify Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. ...
The draft proposal contends that an existing law — passed by the Senate last year after exhaustive negotiations between the White House and Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record), R-Ariz. — that bans cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment should "fully satisfy" the nation's obligations under the Geneva Conventions. end quote.

The problem is that the signing statement the usurper attached to it nullifies McCain's law. The Congress passed it, the usurper won't enforce it, and so it may as well not exist. So the criminal regime chooses to simultaneously secure immunity in U.S. courts and to increase its power to commit more crimes. All this news in 24 hours. They're the busiest sociopaths I've ever observed.
