listening to Palin tonight I was amazed at the flat out lies and distorted information she said about Obama..
"Victory in Iraq is finally in sight, and he wants to forfeit. Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay; he wants to meet them without preconditions"
Excuse me, but where have you been?
This is absolutely true...incontrovertibly true. This is precisely what Obama wants to do. This is not a lie, it is a clear delineation of the Democrat's policy!
"Al Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America, and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights."
..And the sedated audience rose and applauded her for it..
Perhaps they understood what you don't:
Habeus Corpus hasn't been eliminated.
Habeus Corpus applies to American Citizens.
Al Qaeda is NOT in that category.
THEY have no rights.
Trying to give them rights that apply to American Citizens.,..and which also apply, to an extent to Legal Alien Enemy Combatants (by vaious agreed to provisions of international law) is the travesty here.
Hint: Habeus Corpus is a right still granted to all American Citizens (despite the fact that it's virtually obsolete due to the doctrine of innocent until proven guilty). It never was, nor should be a right for an illegal alien enemy combatant. Perhaps taking the time to read and understand the applicable law would illustrate this for you. No one's rights were taken away...at all!
Do you actually know what this means, and to whom it applies? I don't think so.
Where ever the illegal alien enemy combatants are...that is the battle field.
You don't actually really understand this situation, do you?
