I called it!

Well, just one day after the Supreme Court said that the Guantanamo detainees should have access to U.S. Courts, our government has created a military tribunal for them. Can these people not read? What part of "U.S. Court" is unclear?

Of course this is no surprise as this administration's approach to everything is to try to wring all that it can out of any opportunity. Just as it created "enemy combatants" and the Court let that slide, the Court might say this is enough, even though it seemed pretty clear to me that this wasn't what was envisioned. The modus operandi is clearly "let's do 100 things that we know are wrong because we might get away with at least a few" and between the media and the courts and the legislature it usually works out that way. The rule of law is being worn away in front of our eyes and we are just too tired to fight. Sickening.

At what point of flouting the laws of the nation, the Constitution, and the will of the courts do reasonable citizens point out that we have a true junta running a government of men, not laws? At what point do we start calling what they did with Florida a coup???
