Subject: Bush's Attempt to Usurp the Constitution
From: (WalterM140)
Date: 6/29/2004 3:40 AM Pacific Standard Time
Message-id:

Today's New York Times:

"The extreme reach of the administration's view that a war president is not
subject to check by the other branches of government was apparent in the
recently disclosed memorandums on torturing prisoners. A Defense Department
memo from March 2003 said that "any effort by Congress to regulate the
interrogation of unlawful combatants would violate the Constitution's sole
vesting of the commander-in-chief authority in the president." The
administration later disavowed that argument. It would plainly fail the
Supreme
Court's test."



As the SCOTUS indicated in an 8 to 1 kick in the ass they gave him yesterday.
Now watch the neocons accuse the SCOTUS of being left wing. (sheesh)
