RIP Philo

how long will the government keep you away from a lawyer?

2 hours? 24 hours? 48 hours? a week? a month?

The fact that the government is refusing to provide the unidentified citizen with an attorney after he asked for one is unacceptable, especially in light of the fact that he has been detained for so long. The government has said that it is working “diligently” to determine what it ominously and ambiguously calls his “final disposition.” In the meantime, the judge in the case on Friday scheduled an additional hearing for December 8.

“It’s been two and a half months — I'd like to know how long you think you get to do this to a U.S. citizen… Six months? A year?” Judge Chutkan asked. “Basically, it’s just, ‘Trust us, we know what we're doing.’”

He's an "Enemy Combatant".  In Iraq.  And so, he's outside the normal U.S. jurisprudence.

I didn't make these rules, the Bush-II administration made these rules.  And you cheered.

So it's a little late to be so concerned about it now.

Well, maybe 'X' didn't cheer.

Not at all, you misunderstand me.

I simply stated that the "Will of the People" as driven by Bush-II and Trump is that Civil-Liberties are a thing of the past, IF you can be declared an Enemy Combatant.

If you're unhappy about this, you can complain about it here all you want.  Hopefully you'll support Democrats in the future, who will preserve Civil-Liberties.

Or, you can just demonize people who think any differently than you do, who don't echo "Oh, my GOSH! That's a CRIME!".

That's how we got Abu-Ghraib and Gitmo in the first place, after all, knee-jerk demonizing of anyone not marching in lock-step.
