Maiello: Defeat the Press
Miami Fans Mistakenly Chant "Let's Go Eat" During Playoff Game
"Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security," Holder said then. "The Constitution guarantees due process, it does not guarantee judicial process."
I suppose Eric Holder got hold of the abridged version of the Bill of Rights, the one with only 5 Amendments (where the term "due process" comes up)
Obama backs him up with his big concern:
"It's very important for the president and the entire culture of our national security team to continually ask tough questions about, are we doing the right thing, are we abiding by rule of law, are we abiding by due process"
Seems the judiciary was missing in these guys' law curriculum.
Scary stuff. I guess you can get an LLD anywhere these days. No wonder the Constitution's in shambles. Hey Barack, here's a big new idea for your next term - stand up for judicial process, for the whole Constitution. Costs nothing, just a couple stones.
PS - a federal judge just ruled that Gitmo detainees get habeas rights. And the feds can't restrict their lawyers. 3 1/2 years into Obama's presidency, 11 years after we started putting people there, stacking their judicial deck against them, it's about time we do the right thing. Any chance we will?
