Habeas Corpus RIP

The latest evidence that you no longer live in a free country. Remember: citizens as well as non-citizens can now be indefinitely detained without access to a federal court. For your freedom, you have to rely not on the Constitution, but on the beneficence of one man: Dick Cheney. (Yes, I know, strictly speaking that the president is commander-in-chief, but we have learned who really runs the "dark side" of the Bush anti-terror apparatus.) And you can be tortured if he decides it's in the interests of military necessity.
