LEGAL: Commentary on legal challenges to the U.S. Constitution
GOODBYE AMERICA, HELLO NAZI GERMANY? (Are you an enemy combatant?)
The Military Commissions Act and the Warner Defense Act, signed into law October, 2006 give G.W. Bush and his successors full police state powers, doing away with the Constitution, trashing habeas corpus and retroactively absolving torturers of their crimes.

The definition of ‘enemy combatant’ is “extremely broad and arbitrary.” This video leaflet uses text from the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Bill of Rights Defense Ctte, the ACLU, and Amnesty International. 7 min.
