"Just exactly what does the law say?"
There you go. In a nut shell, it says that anyone at any time can be an "unlawful emeny combatant" any where & that there is now no recourse whatsoever.
Habeas Corpus, 900 years as the cornerstone of western civilization's
legal building blocks washed away with no more than a whimper. Disgusting & criminal.
War Crimes are as good as legal, no checks & balances here not even a hearing (Lt. Cally would've been overjoyed if this had happened 30 yrs ago & just 60 years ago the world would've screamed at this type of injustice) unless the guilty party sets foot on foreign soil. Legal to apply to prisoners & the outcome is legal to use in a court of law.
I'm sick to my stomack & I'm sick to be an American!!!
