t r u t h o u t - Marjorie Cohn: Graham Amendment Invokes Constitutional Crisis

Habeas corpus suspended.
American democracy has gone back to wild west barbarism.
I shall continue to refer to Americans as the barbarians till things improve.

t r u t h o u t - Marjorie Cohn: Graham Amendment Invokes Constitutional Crisis: "Habeas Corpus, known as The Great Writ, is the final bastion of liberty for those unjustly held. The last time this country suspended Habeas Corpus was for the internment of tens of thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. That travesty is now universally recognized as a shameful chapter in our nation's history. To suspend The Great Writ once again, while allegations of systematic torture continue to emerge from US prisons, will threaten our Constitution and render 'quaint' our democracy."
