A Dark Day for America

In the last 24 hours, activist judges engaging in judicial theater have dealt two major blows to freedom in this country, giving terrorists around the world cause to rejoice. In Guantanamo, activist judges decided to let the terrorists off the hook for their hatred of freedom:

The Bush administration’s attempt to create an alternative justice system for terrorism suspects, in the works for more than five years, has yet to complete a single trial.

After an earlier version of the system was rejected by the Supreme Court last year, the administration and Congress went back to the drawing board. The result was the Military Commissions Act, which was meant to settle a host of difficult questions once and for all.

But the system took two more blows yesterday, when, in separate proceedings, military judges dismissed charges against prisoners held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, on the ground that the administration had not managed to comply with the new law it pushed through Congress just last fall.

The Bush-Cheney administration, aware of the serious threat posed to our civilization by islamofasicm, has set up military tribunals in Guantanamo bay to deal with the threat. Unfortunately, the activist judges at these same tribunals have, rather than immediately sentencing the terrorists to death, chosen to dwell on quaint notions of "guilt," "evidence," and "jurisdiction."

Sure, some of these concepts may have had some merit three hundred years ago, but you don't ride a horse to work today, and you don't use 17th century legal concepts to deal with the 21st century threat of terror.

But while terrorism is just fine with these activist judges, apparently patriotism and selfless public service are crimes punishable by imprisonment:

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former chief of staff to Vice President Cheney, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000 for lying to investigators about his role in leaking the identity of an undercover CIA officer.

The federal judge who presided over the case indicated that he may not be sympathetic to allowing Libby to remain free pending appeal, but scheduled a hearing on the matter for next week.

One thing is for sure: a President Cheney would understand that you punish the terrorists, not the patriots like Scooter Libby.

This is a dual late-term partial-birth abortion of Justice, probably overseen by Rosie O'Donnell "her"self.

You are right as usual sister. I'm sure if Rosie was still on the television she would be congratulating Al-Qaida along with the rest of the liberals on the View.
