Thomas R. Eddlem at LewRockwell.com - commentary on AG Gonzales' statement, to Arlen Specter's questions in a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting on January 18, that the Constitution doesn't grant the right of habeus corpus, just says the government can't take it away. Well, strictly speaking, he's right. The Constitution doesn't grant any rights. It grants certain limited powers to the government. The people retain the right to do anything and everything that isn't expressly forbidden. A country without habeus corpus is a country with no authority to have any government whatsoever. Mr. Gonzales should be impeached. Immediately. Then tried for crimes against humanity, and, if found guilty by a jury of his peers, shot at dawn on the following day. Video at Samizdata. [lew]
