BUSH ADMIN SAYS IMMIGRANTS MAY BE HELD INDEFINITELY

We've been watching this situation since Bush signed into law the Military Commissions Act.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Immigrants arrested in the United States may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts, the Bush administration said Monday, opening a new legal front in the fight over the rights of detainees.

In court documents filed with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., the Justice Department said a new anti-terrorism law being used to hold detainees in Guantanamo Bay also applies to foreigners captured and held in the United States.

it's like this cath................for now the bushicons can get away with this policy.

after the dems are sworn into power in january there are some dems who are pissed off enough that i think they'll begin the investigation that the voters want to see take place.

but on the otherhand some ofthe starements that i heard in the news last night by some of the bushicons sound like they are trying desperately to convince bush that there's no need to cooperate with the ideas or suggestions that will be raised by the majority dems. they seem to have it in thier head that they in fact did not really lose the election and therefore still hol;d complete sway over foreign/domestic policy via control of the executive branch.

the key for the dems will be using the influence of moderate repubs in the senate or house who are on public record in making many statements on the need to withdraw from iraq and the cessation of warrentless surveillance and the unconstitutional provisions that currently exist in the mca.

time will tell who bush is going to believe.

will he go along blindly with idiots like rove, cheney and dumsfeld who lied to him and the taxpayers in thier now obvious snowjob?

or does he decide to heed the advice of the moderates within his own party to do a serious review of the mandate that the dems/voters sent to him on nov.7.

the tone i'm sensing though from most of the bushicons is that they don't really care whether the dems have power in congress or not.

if this is so then it will be time for the dems to recognize that thier bullshit about bipartisanship is just that..........pure bullshit.

then it will be time for the dems to drop the hammer and go full blast with whatever it takes to put a severe thumping on the bushicons.

i'm thinkin that it could get very ugly.

geeee, what a surprise.
